The 2017 walk...

350 people carried water for 5 kilometers

walking in solidarity with the 1 billion people around the world who still carry water every day.

Together, we raised $11,840

providing 158 people in Ethiopia, Honduras, Bangladesh, and Mozambique with clean water and a toilet FOR LIFE!

You have ended their walk for water FOREVER. More girls can go to school, women will have time to earn money, and children will live healthier lives.

Congratulations!

High fives to The Madeleine School & Parish – the winner of the Golden Jerry Can (top fundraising team)!

THANK YOU TO OUR 2017 SPONSORS:
