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.

Jerrican rentals (for those who were up for the challenge of making the walk carrying water).
People begin to arrive and peruse the displays.
The registration line begins to form.
The walk took place in downtown SLO, with volunteers holding signs with water facts to guide the way.
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!
