On March 21, individuals and families across Charleston took hundreds of thousands of steps during the virtual Walk for Water so that people around the world, mostly women and children, don’t have to walk miles for water.
Amid COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, our annual Walk for Water took place as a virtual event, calling on participants to walk in their neighborhoods – at a safe distance from others.
