Walk Day
 2021 Dotted Line

What should I do when I arrive at the Walk in Riverfront Park on March 26? 
When you arrive at Riverfront Park (1061 Everglades Ave, N. Charleston), follow the signs and sounds of excitement and join us along the river for the opening ceremony. Following the opening ceremony, you will be directed to grab a bucket and start walking so others don’t have to!
 

Where should I go if I want to register on the day of the Walk? 
You may register on the morning of the event at Riverfront Park. Cash and checks are accepted, however, payment by credit card is preferred on Walk day.

What can I expect on Walk day?
We will have plenty of fun and games for all ages at Riverfront Park. During the Walk, you’ll carry an empty bucket for approximately 1.5 miles before filling it with water and walking approximately 1.5 miles back to Riverfront Park. Along the route, you’ll learn about the global water crisis, experience stories from those we serve, and have the opportunity to tour Water Mission’s global headquarters. Back at the park, you will empty your bucket into a Living Water Treatment System—a system that will be commissioned and sent to a community for use!

We encourage everyone to wear their Walk for Water t-shirt as we join together to fight the global water crisis. Wear comfortable shoes for the three-mile walk and dress appropriately for the weather.
