On October 5th Newtown, CT held their second annual Walk4Water.
Barely a year after a tragedy that threatened to tear them apart, Newtown families came together for a charity 5k to change the lives of communities in East Africa.
Participants carried gallons of dirty water - making the same trip many women and children face every day to bring water to their families.
The event raised over $10,000, and we’ll send 100% of that to the field. When projects funded by the W4W are complete, we’ll send the walkers and their supporters reports like this one.
They walk; we work; you watch the world change.

NEWTOWN WALKS FOR WATER 2013!
Last year - just months before the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary - the folks in Newtown, CT organized their first DIGDEEP Walk4Water.
Families, students and office teams walked for 3 miles around a local park carrying 2, two-liter bottles of water. It was a simple, impactful way to connect with people who collect water every day. It was also a great success - the one-day event raised over $15,000!
On October 5th, Newtown will be celebrating it’s second annual Walk4Water at Fairfield Hills at 8:30 am, rain or shine. Here are some handy documents for walkers, sponsors and the local media.
We can’t wait to see how awesome this year’s event is. Go Newtown!
