Support Water Mission

100% of the proceeds from Roanoke Valley Walk4Water will be donated to Water Mission, a nonprofit Christian engineering organization that builds safe water solutions in developing countries and disaster areas.

Why walk?  We walk because more than 2.2 billion people around the world do not have access to safe water. In many countries, women and children walk over three miles each day to gather water for their families. Oftentimes, it’s water that is unsafe to drink. By joining the Walk4Water, you are helping Water Mission provide accessible, life-saving safe water solutions for hundreds of thousands of people.
