Walking For Water 6K

  • Nellie N. Coffman Middle School (map)

Close access to clean water helps reduce poverty, it’s as simple as that. Healthy adults and children are better able to work and can spend more time in school, instead of getting water from far away. You can help!

Walking For Water is a fundraising and awareness event where kids and adults walk 6 kilometers, carrying 6 liters of water in a backpack. That’s just under 4 miles, and is the average distance the mostly women and girls in developing countries must walk every day.

By participating in the Walking For Water campaign, you can learn about local and global water issues and take action to improve the lives of other kids!
