I'm walking the Keuka Outlet Trail on Sept. 16, 2017 to raise funds for three groups whose missions include protecting clean water locally in the Finger Lakes Region and providing access to safe clean water around the globe. The Walk for Water will raise funds for
• Friends of the Outlet, which owns and maintains the Keuka Outlet Trail preservation area, which surrounds the waterway that connects Keuka and Seneca Lakes
• HTS Congo, a local non-profit organization that works to establish clean water supplies and sanitation facilities in DR Congo
• Penn Yan Rotary, which also supports Rotary International's mission of providing clean water around the globe.
