The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2018

The Walk For The Water is a 5k walk specifically for AGS students at Austin High School. On March 9th, 2018, AGS will fetch water from Lady Bird Lake using water jugs. The students will then walk the three mile loop carrying these jugs to represent the average distance that people in developing countries walk in order to get water (often this water is contaminated and barely drinkable).

Each student will fundraise money weeks prior to the the walk in order to provide people in Burundi, Africa with clean, accessible water for life. The money raised will go to the Gazelle Foundation, a local non-profit organization that builds clean water projects in Burundi, Africa.
