Walk for Water

Walk for Water

Saturday, August 04, 2018, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Jubilee Village Project’s Walk For Water is a 3-mile Walk in which participants carry a 5-gallon water bucket to experience the daily trek that women and children around the world make each day to collect water for their families. 

Starting at the north end of the Indy Canal Walk at the Admiral Spruance Memorial Basin, walkers take their empty 5-gallon buckets on a 1.5 mile route to the south end of the Canal Walk in White River State Park.  At this halfway turnaround point, walkers fill their buckets and make the 1.5-mile return trip with their full (or partially full) bucket of water.  

This 3-mile Walk is symbolic of the typical daily walk made by millions of Africans every day to fetch water for their families.  The Walk takes between 60 to 90 minutes to complete.

The cost to participate in the Walk For Water is $40 for Adults and $25 for Students (kids 12 years and under are free).   100% of monies raised will be used to bring safe water to rural villages in western Kenya by funding Jubilee Village Project's next Community Safe Water Project in Kenya.  
(Registration deadline for free t-shirt is July 8).
