Walk for Water Saturday 9/17/16

Walk for Water is a unique, noncompetitive, family-friendly event that offers participants the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of villagers in Cameroon, making their way to the river to fill an empty container and then hauling it back to the starting point. During this event, participants will not only be walking but also carrying a container of water, just as it is done in the villages of Cameroon. Jugs will be provided, but participants can bring their own containers, especially for kids to collect water, too. The event also includes a presentation on the 21 pump wells that have been built and plans for future wells. All proceeds go toward building more pump wells and improving lives through clean drinking water. History: In 2009, Sam Dinga, a native of Cameroon, Africa, and now Stevens Point Resident, lost his 40-year-old sister, MaKah Rosemary, to stomach complications due to bad drinking water. To honor his sister, and in hopes of preventing more people from suffering her fate, he started the MaKah Foundation and pledged to build 40 pump wells in the rural areas of Cameroon.
