WHY WE WALK
Today, you’ll use water countless times—to drink, cook, shower, brush your teeth, and more—without worrying about whether the water is safe.
Every day, millions of women and children worldwide walk more than three miles to collect water for their families. The only available water is often contaminated, exposing their families to dangerous waterborne diseases.
During the Walk for Water, participants walk approximately 1.5 miles to a midway point with an empty bucket. There, they will fill their bucket with dirty water and carry it another 1.5 miles to the end of the Walk.
