8 Miles A Journey to Clean Water

May 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

During 8 Miles for Water, each participant walks to a stream two miles
away and may carry up to 70 pounds of water back, as so many do
daily to survive. Thousands die daily because their water is unsafe.
Every aspect of life – work, education, family – is affected by access
to water and whether or not it’s clean.
Everyone is welcome to participate, walking one or two four-mile
round trips, with or without carrying water.
