The Lifewater 2015 Walk 4 Water

Last Saturday the Lifewater Walk 4 Water took place in San Luis Obispo at the Mission Plaza. Pam and I were there bright and early in the morning to help set things up and staff the event (Pam more so than me). I wandered around and took pictures after things were up and running.

The walk was an easy one, but much more difficult for those carrying water in jerricans.

People carried jerricans on their heads, shoulders, backs, and in their hands. One person also carried a baby.

It was a beautiful, fun day for a wonderful cause. More than $65,000 were raised for water, sanitation, and hygiene programs in southern Ethiopia. Pam and I comprised Team Hoover–thanks to everyone who sponsored us!
