Seattle

We walk so they don't have to.

SUNDAY, MAY 5 | SEATTLE CENTER FOUNTAIN

It's not too late to donate!

More than 700 people carried water for 5 kilometers, walking in solidarity with the 1 billion people around the world who still carry water every day.

It’s not too late to donate. Every dollar we raise helps more people gain access to clean water and toilets! 

High fives to our Water1st Youth Boards and the following individuals & teams for their extraordinary fundraising and outreach!

There were so many exceptional fundraising efforts this year. Naming the top 5 does not fully represent the time, compassion and hard work of our supporters and advocates to make this event a success. We love your good-natured competitiveness. We all win in this effort, especially the people whose walk for water has ended because of you.

From the bottoms of our hearts, WE THANK YOU! Every donor, every advocate, every walker. You are all part of the Water1st community and your individual efforts change lives.
