Millions of people, mostly women and children, must walk up to 5 miles each day to gather water for their homes that may or may not be safe to drink. Their containers can weight up to 40 pounds full of water.
If you’re up for it, take the challenge to walk the course in search of water. With about a 1/2 mile left to go, pick up your jerry can of water and carry it back to the finish line. Try to put yourself in the place of so many around the world who rely on walking for water to survive.
