About This Activity

In many parts of the world, women and children  walk over 5K daily to obtain water for their families cooking, drinking and hygeine needs.  All proceeds from this event will support the building of a sustainable clean water system for an impoverished community in rural Nicaragua. First Presbyterian Church, in partnership with Living Waters of the World, will send a team of volunteers to Las Lajas in March 2015 to oversee the installation of the system, provide training in system maintenance, and education in hygiene and prevention of water borne illness.
