Go Farther in 2017

Every year people make New Year’s resolutions to change their lives for the better. They make plans and promises, recruit accountability partners, and psych themselves up for the challenge of changing.

For most of us, resolutions focus on things within our own lives that we want to change. But what would happen if we chose to go farther with our goals? This year, let’s do something to change the lives of thousands of people around the world, along with ourselves!

People go farther by walking for safe water at the Charleston Walk for Water in support of Water Mission.

For the 1.8 billion people who lack access to safe water, the beginning of a new year is the tough reminder that change doesn’t come easily. They continue to wake up to the devastating reality of dirty, contaminated water with little hope that this crisis will end any time soon. With your help, we can go farther in bringing safe water to those who are still waiting.

Let’s make 2017 the year that our personal resolutions change the lives of others forever!

 

Whatever your 2017 resolutions are about – fitness, finances, education, charity – you can participate in the Walk for Water and use it as a way to go farther.

  • Trying to get fit? Carry two buckets of water 3.5 miles.
  • Want to be more educated? Learn about the global water crisis and how you can give others the opportunity for education through safe water.
  • Looking to be more generous? Start a Walk for Water team, and get your friends and family involved in fundraising.
