Walk for Water

Walk for Water

Imagine — a 5k Walk / Run + Jugs of Water = Tons of Fun!

About

Walk for Water is a fundraising 5K Walk and Run to increase awareness of the worldwide lack of access to clean water and to raise funds to help Clean Water for the World provide water purifications units at no cost to communities in developing countries.

Water Carrying

Walkers are encouraged to carry jugs filled with water during the 5K.  This is to simulate the work women and children in developing countries do every day to obtain water.  Pre-filled water jugs will be provided.

A water carrying competition will take place during the walk.  Participants can carry as much water as possible using whichever methods they choose. The winners will be decided by the greatest volume of water carried per team member. NO BACKPACKS AND NO WHEELS.

Where is it held?

Since 2011, Walk for Water has been held in Kalamazoo, Michigan and Toledo, Ohio.
