Make it personal and meaningful to you and invite your village to join you by choosing how you will participate the week of September 5-11. The options are limitless. For ideas and tools for raising funds see the tools page. If you are interested in planning your own event or finding one near you check out the events page. We hope that you will choose to participate in the daily challenges that will be issued during the event:
Sunday, September 5, Sunday Service
Offer a prayer of gratitude for the clean water you receive every day and a prayer for inspiration to know how you can help others to receive that same gift. Watch your inbox for an inspirational video to kick off the week.
Monday, September 6, Monday Miles
How many miles can you put in today? Post how many miles you walked on the Walk 4 Water Facebook group and/or why this cause is important to you. (You may even ask your village to pledge to donate for your miles.)
Tuesday, September 7, Two-fer Tuesday
Walk (or run) two miles, recognizing this is only half the distance the average woman and child travel each day to get water. For an extra challenge walk carrying a bucket of water and consider those women and children who walk an average of 4 miles every day to gather all of their family water needs.
Wednesday, September 8, Wednesday Water
Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of clean water. Finalize your plans for Saturday by either reminding friends of the event you are having or by searching our list of “public” events for one near you.
Thursday, September 9, Thursday Throw-down
Throw out on social media a video about what you’re doing and vocally express gratitude for the clean water that enters your home every day. You can find links to videos on the tools page.
Friday, September 10, Friday 5K
Walk or run five kilometers. Write about your virtual 5K on your social media story and invite your friends to donate and help you meet your fundraising goal before Saturday night.
Saturday, September 11, Saturday Celebration
Join a live event near you or have your own. Check out the events page for ideas for hosting your own event.
Sunday, September 12, Sunday Ceremony
Say a prayer of gratitude for the abundance you have been given and the opportunity you have to share. Tune in at 7 PM MST on the Walk 4 Water Facebook group for the live drawing, our award ceremony, and the announcement of the expedition winner. (A ticket will be submitted for each $500 raised and reported by Saturday night.)
