Water is the most fundamental need for all life on planet Earth. One of the greatest injustices is that 783 million human beings currently lack access to this greatest life-giving resource, while millions more must walk many hours each day to collect buckets of water for their families.

Let’s come together to see that all people have access to clean water!

March 22 – 29, 2016, I will walk 100 miles from Mill Creek, WA to Canada to raise support and spread awareness of the global need for clean water and how we can easily provide solutions to end the problem.

I have a partnered with Water Is Basica non-profit organization that works to restore water wells in South Sudan. Over the past 30 years, well-meaning organizations built water wells. However, due to a lack of community involvement and training of locals to maintain them, the water wells quickly fell into disrepair, cutting off clean water access to thousands.

We need to restore these wells and engage in training with the communities of South Sudan to give them a sustainable source of clean water.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 which will fund the restoration of 15 water wells in South Sudan.

100 miles equates to 200,000 steps. Please consider how many steps of this 100 mile walk you would like support.

1 penny = 1 step
$10 = 1000 steps
100 miles = 200,000 steps
