On Saturday, March 20, over 2,300 people participated in the 15th Annual Water Mission Walk for Water. Together, they raised awareness and funds to fight the global water crisis. Staggered times in Riverfront Park—and a virtual “walk anywhere” option—allowed for social distancing.

The three-mile route represented the average distance people walk each day to collect water that can lead to water-related illnesses. Walkers carried empty buckets until the halfway point, filled them with water, and carried the full buckets the final 1.5 miles.
Together, we’ve raised nearly $300,000 to provide safe water solutions to communities around the world!
