Around the world, 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water. Millions of women and children walk nearly four miles to collect water for their families every day. Often this water is not safe to drink, resulting in illness and even death. But we have the power to change this.
The Roanoke Valley Walk4Water is a unique event where you have the opportunity to walk in the shoes of our global neighbors. By doing so, you raise awareness and funds to help end the global water crisis.
All race registration fees and donations benefit Water Mission, a nonprofit Christian engineering organization that builds safe water solutions in developing countries and disaster areas. Since 2001, Water Mission has served more than 7 million people in 57 countries. By coming alongside Water Mission, you are part of the solution. Through you, Water Mission will be able to impact the lives of more men, women, and children who currently lack access to safe water.
