Walk for Water will be hosted at the Escalon High School football field later this month. The school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes is putting on the fundraiser.
Open to all ages, the Saturday, Nov. 21 event will run from 9 a.m. to noon and will include water education, fellowship and food. Prizes will be presented for the highest sponsor total and most laps total. T-shirts will be given for getting $20 in donations; all participants must bring in a minimum of $20 in donations to participate.
Walk for Water is a program that provides students the opportunity to experience the difficulties that many around the world undertake to secure clean water. There will be a variety of stations for participants to visit to learn more about how water is obtained in other countries. In addition, by bringing in sponsorship donations, students have an opportunity to help those who are less fortunate. It provides a great opportunity for families and the youth of the community to join together to support Children Safe Uganda in their effort to secure clean water. Youth groups, churches, schools, families and individuals are invited to participate. Donation sheets and donations should be brought to the field the day of the event.
Registration forms are available at the Escalon High School office and must be turned in at the office, Room 31 at the high school or by contacting Kim Rigg by Saturday, Nov. 7.
The goal is to raise $4,000 to provide for construction of a deep water well in Uganda.
