THE STORY:

4others wrote -

An extreme event to highlight an extreme cause!

Every day, women and children have to walk for up to 4 hours to fetch water, taking valuable time away from receiving a school education or earning an income. Often, this water is unsafe to drink leading to sickness, disease, and even death. In fact, over 80% of diseases in the developing world are related to poor drinking water and sanitation. As a result, 1 child dies every 15 seconds due to water-related illnesses.

We can make a difference! On June 29, 2010, a group of young people will return to Death Valley National Park to conduct a 15-mile walk-a-thon in the desert! 15 miles to raise awareness of the fact that a child dies every 15 seconds due to a preventable water-related illness. They will begin at Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the western hemisphere and one of the hottest places on earth. With temperatures expected to rise over 120 degrees, these students will brave the heat in order to bring clean water to sub-Saharan Africa. As a true water walk, they will each symbolically carry a container of water to serve as a reminder that "We're walking so they don't have to."

JOIN THEM IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE by financially supporting the group of youth participating in the "Badwater for Good Water Walk." Just $1 can provide clean water for 1 African for 1 year! $10 can provide 1 African clean water for a lifetime! 100% of the funds we receive* will go directly to drilling and repairing clean water wells.
