Water scarcity and poor sanitation are the biggest causes of child malnutrition and other life-threatening childhood diseases. Over 1,000 children die every day from diseases caused by lack of safe water, and worldwide more than 2 billion people do not have access to safe water.

About the Walkathon

Our Walkathon for Water is designed to shorten the distance for children in their quest for water and thus give them the chance to have a better life. It’s special because it’s for charity and also due to its significant distance. Six kilometres is the average distance millions of children in Africa, Asia and Latin America have to cover every day to fetch water.

In our walkathon you can do a 4-6 kilometre charity walk which will help us raise awareness about this problem while also providing resources to bring water to the people who need it most.

What is our role

The We Are Water Foundation, European Resorts managed by Hilton Grand Vacations and all the participants aim to raise as many donations as possible and turn them into aid projects.

For every kilometre you walk, someone else will walk 1 kilometre less in search of water.

Help us make it happen!
