Join us as we carry water in solidarity with the 1 billion people around the world who still carry water every day. Together, we can reach our $175,000 walk goal and provide 2,400 people in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Honduras, and Mozambique with clean water at the turn of a tap - ending their walk for water FOREVER. You do not have to carry water to participate. Walk as far as you are able. 

FORM A TEAM: Rally your family and friends – from your school, workplace, sports team, scout troop, place of worship – to walk with you. Individual walkers are welcome too!

FUNDRAISE: Every $75 you raise provides a child with clean water and a toilet FOR LIFE. To help us reach our $175,000 goal, each walker is encouraged to raise a minimum of $175. If you or your team raise $5,000 or more, you can have a personalized plaque at a community water project.

WALK: On Sunday, May 7, over 800 peoople of all ages will carry water for 5 kilometers around Seattle Center. Carry as much water as you're able, or just join us for the walk.
