Earth Day: Virtual Walk For Water

Waterboys Team

April 5, 2021

This Earth Day, we’ve teamed up with H2O For Life to bring you the 2021 Earth Day Virtual Walk for Water. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support water, sanitation and hygiene education projects around the world – And you can join us and help us reach that goal.

On (or around) Earth Day on Thursday, April 22, participants will carry a full gallon water jug or backpack with a similar amount of weight and walk at least one mile to represent the miles children around the world walk just to collect water.

There is an urgent need for water, sanitation and hygiene education projects (WASH in Schools) for schools around the world. The relationship between water and health is significant. An estimated two million people die every year from diarrhea-related diseases. Children, especially those under the age of five, are most susceptible to the ultimate horrors of waterborne diseases. Access to clean water and adequate sanitation substantially decreases the mortality rates among children.

You can register by creating a personal fundraiser and asking your friends, family and coworkers to contribute – All donations to this campaign will be MATCHED by our implementing partners!

Share your photos and videos of your walk on social media, and make sure to tag us and use the hashtag #walkforwater
