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.

For just one day, walk to experience what 1 billion people do every single day. Carry up to 5 gallons of water for 5 kilometers – or as much as you are able – in support of those who need clean water.

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

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

If you or your team raise $5,000 or more, you can have a personalized plaque at a community water point.
