George and Molly Greene start Water Mission's 11th annual Walk for Water.

On Saturday, March 25, nearly 4,800 of us walked for water in solidarity with those around the world who walk daily to fetch dirty, contaminated water. Starting in Brittlebank Park, we carried our buckets through Hampton Park and the Citadel campus. Together, we raised over $300,000 so that people in need would know and enjoy the benefits of safe water and sanitation.

For those we will serve with safe water, it is the beginning of a new future. Read More
