Walk For Water
SEPTEMBER 15th | 10AM | Living Waters Church (9095 Glover Road), Ft. Langley
Everyday millions of Ugandans walk 6 km to fetch dirty water. For one moment, we’ll walk a mile in their shoes.
Join us as we walk 3 kilometres to understand what the daily task of collecting water feels like for Ugandans. Together we’ll carry jerry cans to a “watering hole,” fill them and return to our starting point with the heavy load.
This is a family friendly event with participants of all ages welcome! We’ll gather at Living Waters Church (9095 Glover Road) have a quick warm up before picking up our Jerry Cans and heading out to the “watering hole.” Once there we’ll fill up, and carry the Jerry Cans back and wind up with a lunch BBQ.
We’re asking for a donation of $25, so that together we can eliminate the need to walk for water for Ugandan families. Want to take your participation to the next level? Register a team and set a fundraising goal of at least $125, enough to provide a lifetime of clean water to one child in Uganda. Everything you raise or give will be matched: dollar for dollar.
If you’re not able to give or fundraise, we still want you to come. It will be well worth it.
We’re asking for a minimum donation of $25, so that together we can eliminate the need to walk for water for Ugandan families.
Form a Team and fundraise for clean water on ACTS’ behalf.
- Can I bring my children and what will they carry?
Absolutely, this is an event welcome to people of all ages. Children tend to want to carry the full size jerry cans (just empty) but feel free to bring a 4L milk jug if not!
- Do I have to bring my own Jerry Can?
No. We will have Jerry cans for you to use for the event.
- Where will my donation go?
Your donation will go to provide clean water to 6500 people in Kicuzi, Uganda who live without access to this essential need. Learn more about ACTS and what your donation will provide.
- How long is the walk?
We’ll be walking a total of 3 kilometres along sidewalks and park paths. It will be stroller friendly.
- What can I expect?
Hopefully you’ll get a sense of what Ugandans go through every day to get water in a fun, relaxed environment.
6. Can I come without giving?
YES! This event is not about the money! Please come regardless as we think you will find it to be a meaningful opportunity to engage physically with what our friends in Uganda go through everyday.
