Event Details

The WALK 4 WATER is a 3-mile walk through beautiful Fairfield Hills campus in Newtown, CT. This is a typical distance women and often children in Africa must walk each day to collect water for their families.  The first half of the walk we will be empty-handed, the second half we will be carrying 2 2-liter bottles filled with water to simulate what women go through.  Walkers can carry the water any way they want on their bodies for the 1.5 miles, whether it be in a bag, backpack, their hands, etc.  This is a fundraising drive but also an educational event for people to experience one aspect of water poverty.  Volunteer fundraisers will get pledges and donations for doing the walk with 100% of the donations going to water access projects (like wells).  DIGDEEP defends your human right for water for all people.  We hope you will participate. Will you DIGDEEP ?
