Join as we carry water for 5 kilometers in solidarity with the 1 billion people around the world who still carry water every day. Together, we can help provide communities in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Honduras with clean water at the turn of a tap.

Around the world…

200 million women and children spend up to 5 hours a day walking for water.

5 million girls cannot go to school because they are carrying water.

5,000 children die from preventable, water-related diseases every day.

WALK: On May 22, people of all ages will carry up to 5 gallons of water for 5 kilometers around Laurelhurst Park. Carry as much water as you're able, or just join us for the walk.

FORM A TEAM: Rally your family and friends – from your school, workplace, scout troop, sports team, place of worship – to walk with you.

RAISE FUNDS: Help the world’s poorest with their greatest need. Every $75 you raise provides a child with clean water and a toilet FOR LIFE.
