How Walk for Water works

It’s simple! Pledge how far you’ll walk each day – 4, 8 or 12km – then track your progress as you complete the challenge, raising funds so we can make clean water normal for everyone, everywhere.

Join Walk for Water today to set up your own bespoke fundraising page, where you can keep track of how far you’ve walked and how much you’ve raised. Share your page with friends and family so they can follow your progress and support you by making a donation.

Then, from 1 to 31 March, walk every day. Whether you prefer a few lunchtime laps of the park, an evening stroll, or a long weekend hike – it’s up to you how you choose to reach your target distance. Log your activity automatically using the fitness app Strava, or manually add your walks to your fundraising page – you’ll be able to see your individual progress, and every km you complete will count towards our overall total.

Why Walk for Water?

Millions of women and girls have to walk up to 12km every day to get the water they and their families need to survive – women and girls like Tiyamike, Majory and Felisberta.

When you Walk for Water, you’re helping to give Tiyamike, Majory, Felisberta and others across the world the power to change their own lives, forever.

Past walkers

The route I selected around our village was modest in length... the beautiful surroundings and the fact that I generally walked early in the morning made it a delightful experience. I took the solitude and quietness as an opportunity to think of those who actually walk to collect water and often in much less pleasant conditions and this was an incentive to be consistent day by day."
