Choose your Water Challenge this March, improve your health, and help provide lifesaving safe water in some of the world’s poorest communities.
Currently 1 in 10 people worldwide do not have access to safe, clean water. In some of the world's poorest countries, women and children walk approximately 50 kilometres a week to collect water – around 10,000 steps each day.
Coinciding with World Water Day on the 22 March, the Water Challenge is WaterAid's annual fundraising event aimed at providing safe, clean water for children around the world.
Registration is free and for every $70 raised you can help provide safe, clean water for a child.
There are 2 challenges you can participate in:
Drink Just Water: Drinking sugary drinks can have disastrous effects on health. It can lead to health problems such as weight gain, tooth decay and insulin resistance. Challenge your school to make ‘just water’ the only beverage for 14 or 30 days this March, to improve your health and raise money for others in need.
Walk for Water: Get your school active this March and participate in the original Walk for Water challenge. Set a distance goal and walk or run to good health between 14 and 20 March, whilst raising money to help provide clean, safe water to those in need.
