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.

A charity you can trust:  Water Mission, a nonprofit Christian engineering organization, was awarded Charity Navigator’s four-star rating for the 15th consecutive year. Charity Navigator is America’s largest independent charity evaluator, and the four-star rating is earned by only 1% of all charities rated by the organization. This top distinction reflects Water Mission’s commitment to accountability and transparency.
