How important is proper sanitation and safe drinking water to you?
Today, 2.5 billion people (almost a billion of them children) live without basic sanitation or safe drinking water.
On Sat. Nov. 3, 2012, Cedardale Church held a 5km Water Walk-a-thon (from the church to the library and back) to raise money to provide a deep tube well in Africa. Our goal was to raise $1,500, enough to drill one well which will provide water for 100 – 500 people. We succeeded ... Hallelujah!
A walker in the Water Walk-a-thon: Fill out a Walk-a-thon Registration Form and drop it off at the church office on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. Get some sponsors and make your walk worthwhile!! A suggested sponsorship pledge is $2/km, i.e. $10 for the walk. Pick up a Walk-a-thon Pledge Form and get your sponsors to sign it. Then, do the walk, pick up the pledges signed and drop the form and the money to the church. Be at the church at 8:45 am on Sat. Nov. 3, ready to walk at 9:00 am.
After the Walk-a-thon, stay for a Water Walk-a-thon Brunch at the church.
See me at the table in foyer on Sunday for forms, or download them right here.
