Find a Walk
Have you ever been sitting on the couch, wishing you had a glass of water, but at the same time thought, “Nah, I don’t want to walk to the kitchen”? You’re not alone, we’re all guilty of doing that at least a couple of times in our lives, but let me ask you, how far is that actual walk to the kitchen? Twenty, maybe 30 feet? Well, what if your walk was four, maybe five miles...at the least. Guess what, for some people not even too far from us...it is. You can help make that walk just a little shorter though! Come join us at Maysville Church of Christ on October 19 and lets take part in making someone’s #Walk4Water just a little bit shorter by raising funds to help a third-world community in need have a water well drilled so that water can be made more easily accessible, and maybe even spread some love and the good Word, as well. We look forward to walking with you!
We would like to invite you to join us on Saturday, October 19th at the Delmarva Youth Service Camp to do a 4-mile walk to raise awareness and money to help bring clean water to people around the world. We often take the blessing of clean water for granted because it is so accessible for us. There are many people around the world that do not have that blessing so they spend their days walking to find a water source. Sometimes that source is a well and there is clean water but often the source is a river, lake, pond, waterhole, etc., which is full of contaminated water. The walk is for all ages and even if you cannot walk the entire 4 miles, we want you to still come out and learn about how you can make a difference. Go ahead and register online and if you would like to make a donation you can do so on the walk page or you can donate the day of the event. Together as a community, we can share the blessings of clean water with a community in Haiti or Zimbawe.
Oregon State University Christian Center is hosting its second annual Walk4Water. Why? Two reasons: First, clean water can transform a community suffering from a draught. Second, sacrificial giving can unite and transform Corvallis by giving us the opportunity to love our neighbors, both in Corvallis and across the globe. People from all walks of life and faith backgrounds are invited to come and give to a good cause. Details: When: 9:00am-12pm, lunch provided. What: We will walk 2 miles from Avery Park to the Willamette River, fill up jugs of water to simulate walking for water in Haiti, then return to Avery Park. What to bring: Cash, credit car or check book to donate money. Goal: Drill one well in Haiti or Zimbabwe, $7500
Please join us for a Walk4Water at Camp Wiregrass as part of our fall youth retreat. We are excited to help make a difference for people around the world who don't have the access to clean water that we do.
Water is an essential part of life, yet there are still many places in this world with limited access to clean water. The Rutherford County Walk4Water makes a life-changing difference in the world each year. Our community comes together with the common goal to raise money to dig wells in developing countries. These wells will bring clean water and with it, life to these communities. Last year we were able to fund a new well in Haiti.
As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be servant-hearted people who strive to make this world a better place. Jesus said that his true followers are those who care for others, especially those who are less fortunate and in need. In Matthew 25, Jesus teaches that to truly follow him and be his disciple means being compassionate and of assistance to those in need. This walk is an opportunity to show compassion and make a real difference to those who are in need. Please consider joining this cause by participating in our walk or by making a donation.
We’re excited about partnering with Healing Hands International to dig some clean water wells in Haiti! Our goal is $30,000, and when we get there we’ll be able to dig 4 wells for Haitian communities! Our Walk4Water event will be Sunday afternoon, November 17, at Homewood Central Park Pavilions 6 and 7. Registration begins at 1:30pm, and the walk starts at 2:00pm. Some will choose to walk the 4-mile distance out of respect for the millions of women and children in developing countries who walk this distance daily to get water, which — in most cases — is contaminated by different kinds of bacteria. Others will simply attend the event to show their support and raise awareness for this very treatable problem. It’s also an excellent opportunity to show our kids that we can make a difference in the lives of fellow human beings who are struggling.
We will once again host a Walk 4 Water this year on Saturday, November 23rd. Check in will be at 9:00am and we will begin the walk at 9:30am. We use this as an event to raise awareness for the need for clean drinking water.
This is a great opportunity to make your family and children aware of the need for clean drinking water in other places in the world, and we hope you will join us as we Walk 4 Water!
As a side note, please do not create a personal financial goal for this event. Instead, plan to also join us for our Day of Thanks and Giving service and save your financial contributions for the collection on that day. We will meet the overall financial goal for Walk 4 Water through the giving at that service as a part of our Day of Thanks and Giving collection.
