The 3rd annual Twin Cities Walk for Water was a smashing success this year, with nearly 600 registered walkers and over $150,000 raised to help create clean water systems in developing nations. Sponsored by Pace Analytical and Pentair , the Twin Cities Walk for Water is an event created by the non-profit organization Water Mission that is inspired by the burden that millions of women and children bear every day walking an average of 3.5 miles to collect water that is not safe for consumption. 100% of the proceeds go to Water Missions, who create systems that are set up in needy areas all over the world.
This year’s event was held at the beautiful Upper Landing Park in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and although temperatures hovered around 90 degrees, the spirits of the walkers weren’t dampened as they walked for their cause by the hundreds. We are already planning for next year’s events and hope to double our results! Watch the video below for a brief recap of this year’s event.
