Rio Rancho Water Walk

You may have read our previous post on the upcoming Water Walk in Rio Rancho!  We are so excited about this opportunity to once again raise money for a water well in Africa.  Let me go over the basics of the event again:

Who: H20: Hydration 2 Others

What: A mile-long walk from the park down to the river to collect water and bring it back in a jug as a reminder of what people across the world have to do every day.

When: April 20, starting at 10 A.M.

Where: Rio Vista Park in Rio Rancho.

Cost: A suggested donation of $10 per student, $25 per adult, and $50 per family.

Why: Because every year, the equivalent of the population of Los Angeles dies from lack of access to clean drinking water.  Really puts things in perspective doesn't it?  That's over 3.4 million people.  Currently, 780 million people lack access to clean drinking water.  That means every one in nine people die from lack of access to clean drinking water.  We are doing this to bring down those numbers.  Individually we can't do anything.  But if we stand together, we can bring down those numbers.  Join us in our Water Walk.
