During this unprecedented time, large events and gatherings have been cancelled, but our sense of community and generosity are stronger than ever. Let’s join together as a community to Walk/Run for Water for families and communities in need in Kenya.
The global health crisis presents many challenges to our daily routines but finding ways to stay active and giving to those in need is not one of them. As a global community, from wherever you are, we can get outside, have fun, and feel a strong sense of community in our efforts.
Join the Ekenywa family for the Virtual 5K Walk/Run for Water on Friday-Sunday, August 28-30. People all around the world are participating. Invite your friends, family, co-workers, Facebook/Instagram friends, and anyone who wants to have fun and help provide clean and reliable water to women, children and individuals in need.
