Virtual walk beginning October 19 and ending November 1

In-person event will be on November 1

 

We’re excited about partnering with Healing Hands International to dig some clean water wells! Our goal is $30,000, and when we get there we’ll be able to dig 4 wells for communities in the developing world! Our Walk4Water event will be Sunday afternoon, November 1. 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. Please also make plans to stay after the walk for a joint worship service!
