Walk for Water: Naperville Crosstown Collaboration
All proceeds go to H20 For LifeEvery day, millions of women and children spend hours of their day fetching water. For some, that water source may be a well, but for many others it may be nothing more than a small creek or pond. Oftentimes, the water is unsafe to drink; but with no alternatives, people drink it anyway. The result of this is staggering: 3.4 million people die every year from water-related diseases.Our students are taking action. While we know that we can’t solve the world’s water crisis, we can make a difference for a community. By partnering with H2O for Life, we are hoping to raise over $10,000 to help students who don’t have access to clean drinking water, hand-washing stations, and sanitary bathrooms at:
- Chub Romdeng Primary School in Svay Leu, Cambodia
- Valle San Antonio in Valle San Antonio, Nicaragua
- Mangani Primary School in Mangani, Mozambique
- Gamachu Primary School in West Asri, Ethiopia
Join us for the 4th Annual Walk for Water, a three-mile walk during which students, parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and more will carry gallon jugs to simulate what many women and children do several times a day, every day.
The walk will be held on Friday, May 19. Activities will begin at 6:00 pm at Jefferson Junior High School, located at 1525 North Loomis Street in Naperville. Everyone is welcome to join the walk. All funds raised will be donated to H2O for Life. For those interested in donating, there are several options listed on the registration form below.
