Activities: Virtual race, 3.7 Miles, 29 Miles, 89 Miles


One thing we learned from the pandemic? Water matters, and access to it means communities can improve their overall health and economy, women can start small businesses to support their families. Children—especially girls—can attend school. 
We created this challenge to connect our amazing supporters to the people and country they support. Walking together as a global community, we will help drill a new well in a South Sudan village ($15,000). When we reach our goal, everyone participating in the event will receive photos of the well once complete. 

How can you help? 

  • Register today as an individual (H2O Hero) or gather a group and create a team (Water Warriors);
  • Create a fundraising page, share it with family, friends, and connect on Facebook;
  • Choose from three distances: 3.7 mi (5.9 km), 29 mi (46 km), or 89 mi (143 km);
  • Log your activities (walk, run, bike, swim, or hike) to reach your goal;
  • Earn badges when you reach distance and fundraising milestones; and
  • Receive exclusive video and photos from South Sudan.

*Please remember you can complete your distance goal over several weeks or two months.
