BRING SAFE, CLEAN WATER TO UGANDA
You know how critical water is for life in the Valley. Now imagine if you have to walk 3.7 miles daily to collect water - with no guarantee that it's safe for your family to drink!
That's the reality for millions of people worldwide. But you can help change that for a village in Uganda by joining the first, Phoenix-area Walk 4 Water.
Saturday, October 9
Walk Begins @ 8:30 a.m.
23104 N. 67th Ave
Glendale, AZ 85310
YOUR GIFT WILL SAVE LIVES
Walk 4 Water will benefit Water4, a nonprofit that equips local entrepreneurs in developing countries to provide sustainable, safe water access to every home, school, and clinic in their communities.
If you can't join the walk, please make a gift to Water4 today. Your gift is tax-deductible and will be matched -dollar for dollar - by a generous Water4 donor!
Water is often carried in five-gallon
buckets which weigh over
40 pounds when full.

WHY WE'RE WALKING
Walk 4 Water is hosted by Mountain Ridge Church. Our church is walking because we believe in spreading the hope of Jesus to our neighbors and all the world. That only happens when we step out and act on our faith. Learn more about the church.
But you don't have to attend Mountain Ridge Church to walk. All you need is a desire to have fun outside with friends and the ability to walk a level, 1-mile route.
And if your dog is fit and friendly, they're welcome to walk, too!
Want to gain a deeper appreciation for the people in Uganda we're helping? Consider carrying a 3-gallon or
5-gallon bucket of water that we'll have available for walkers who enjoy a challenge.
