How Far Will You Go 4 Water?

In order to preserve our fresh water resources and have a positive impact on the global water crisis, we must create more awareness and reconnect people with the fresh water resources in our own backyard.


Make a commitment to clean water for all. Invest in the 2.1 billion people who still lack clean water, the 4.5 billion who don't have a safe toilet, and the next generation that we have to engage on these issues.

Event Info
Beginning on June 20, you will have 10 days to complete and submit your 4 mile time. Don’t worry- 1 mile options are also available! Or, compete in the 10 Day Challenge by completing 4 Miles every day for 10 days (walking or running) to be eligible for bonus prizes. 4 miles is the average distance many people in the world have to walk in order to collect water. Others do this every day- you just have to do it for 10 days if you opt in for the 10 Day Challenge. You got this!
