To help provide sustainable sources of clean water around the world, Redeemer will participate in Water Missions International‘s Walk for Water event. This family-friendly, dog-friendly 3.5-mile walk will start at Cannon Park at 9 am on Saturday, March 22 and end at White Point Garden. Register to join the Redeemer team, or make a donation in support of our team. Our own Lauren Martin is helping captain our team, and she enjoys this annual event:
I love participating in the Walk for Water because it is a great time for fellowship and exercise in a beautiful part of downtown and a chance to take a walk in someone else’s shoes. The walk gives you just a little taste of what life is like for many people in other parts of the world who have to walk several miles each day for water. You fill a bucket with dirty water, and carrying it really makes you think about what life would be like without a clean or convenient water source. Just when you start feeling hopeless about the situation, you find yourself at the finish line and pour your water into the purification system that your registration fee is helping to take to countries all over the world.
Enjoy our pictures from last year’s Walk for Water, and make plans to join in the fun for this worthy cause!
