Join Cherokee Trail's UNICEF on its first Water Walk at the Fox Ridge Middle School track on Saturday, September 22nd at 9am! This 5k is an educative and fun event with a little something for everyone.
The Water Walk is an event to draw attention to the global water crisis and its effects on children. It is estimated that 663 million people do not have access to improved water sources whereby 800 children die from preventable causes. We, the students of UNICEF, believe that access to clean water should not be a privilege for some, but a right for all.
Join us on a walk, experiencing what it's like to collect water at a well, and carry buckets of along a walk home faced with obstacles and stops along the way. In addition to raising awareness, all proceeds will be benefitting, through UNICEF, regions like East Africa or Southeast Asia and their Water, Sanitation, and Hygeine efforts.
Join us at for a Burrito Night Thought Club at Chipolte at 117 East 14th Street (near Union Square). Mention Unicef at the cash register and you help raise funds for Unicef just from buying food. If we purchase $300 or more 33% of the funds made on this day between 4-8pm will be donated to Unicef!
