…so what is a Walk 4 Water anyway?
Lawson Road Church of Christ in Greece has partnered for two years with Healing Hands International, a faith-based nonprofit which provides clean water, sustainable farming, business development, and resources for communities around the globe who are in need.
This will be the third year the church has sponsored a HHI Walk4Water event. The walk is a fundraiser to secure money for drilling wells. To date HHI has drilled more than 1,000 wells providing clean water to remote communities! A typical walk involves preregistering using the button above, where you can set up a personal fundraising page for online donations. We walk 4 miles (average distance round trip to secure water from an unclean source in some countries) taking turns carrying gerry cans of water so we better appreciate their hardship. Contaminated water leads to illnesses. Children often miss school to haul water. Our goal of $7,500 will drill one well.
If you’d like to help change one village at a time, you are invited to participate with us in the Rochester Walk4Water on Sunday, June 12, 2022. This year’s walk begins at the Lawson Road Church of Christ, 15 Lawson Road. We will travel residential sidewalks to Lakeshore Elementary School on Latta Road for brief refreshment and an educational presentation before retracing our route back to the church. Registration is at 1:00 pm and the walk begins at 1:15. Participants may spontaneously show up the day of the walk, but pre registration is encouraged so we have adequate water, snacks and t-shirts! Can’t walk but wish to donate? You can do so by clicking the button above. Water is life! Can you spend an hour or two of yours to improve the lives of others?
