Provide new wells in Africa
Water is essential for life. And yet, more than 2 billion people live without easy access to clean water. In many countries across the world, women and children walk 4 miles each day to gather dirty water that often causes disease and death.
There is a simple solution: build new wells, educate and help community members implement a sustainability plan. Organizations are successfully changing the course of life for many living in Africa.
How YOU can HELP!
Together, we can improve the quality of life for those living without clean water. Our goal is simple: 365 people, each walking 4 miles and raising $100. $36,500 will provide LIFELONG fresh water for 7,000 people.
How can you help?
- Register for the event and commit to raising at least $100.
