Proceeds benefit WaterHope, a Bay Area nonprofit bringing awareness and real solutions to the world water crisis.
Who benefits?1This year, we are raising funds to benefit the Human Needs Project in Kiberia, a slum on the outskirts of Nairobi, where over 300,000 people live. Our goal of $60,000 will provide the residents of this impoverished village with the means to access clean drinking water for years to come.What's a Jerry Can?2These five gallon vessels are synonymous with water collection in Africa as they are used to carry the water villagers bathe in, cook with, and drink.
Secure your spot3The first 200 participants registered have the opportunity to carry a jerry can & symbolically Walk the Walk of many global citizens who must rely on these containers to collect their daily water. You can run, you can walk: this is not a timed race so no pressure! Just good fun and the knowledge that you are making a real difference.Get together4Sign up individually or, better yet, build a team! Get your family, friends and work colleagues to join you in helping to bring awareness to the world water crisis.
