Like last year we are having a video component to our event – except this year you can watch it whenever you like! Just click play below and see some sharing from our teen groups, a few auction highlights, a little about our projects and a showing of 20 Miles a Glass, the wonderful documentary by Colter Johnson about Walking for Water. It was picked up by PBS! Sit back and ENJOY!

June 19th and 20th are here!!!

We are excited to add some new features to the Virtual Walking for Water this year. One is the new Event Page hosted by our fundraising partner Donor Drive. Two is the fun walking app Move Spring. More interaction. More engagement. More adventure! 

There are three basic ways to join in for the virtual event: 

Do one or all three! Our hope this year is for more collaboration, community, and camaraderie to make this an event that will continue for many years to come. Better yet – you can join in from anywhere in the world! Sign up to participate through the app and walk with everyone else! Share your progress and encourage others to join. If you believe in the work of Wisdom Spring  – you can show you are part of the people who care about supporting our teens and supporting others around the world.

CLICK THE REGISTER NOW BUTTON TO SIGN UP, SET YOUR WALKING GOAL, AND REACH OUT TO SPONSORS! 

YOU CAN ALSO DONATE DIRECTLY ABOVE! 

Registration is OPEN!!!

Plenty of time to set your goal, find sponsors and share with your community.

All you need to do is:

REGISTER

Go to our Event Page to sign up and create your fundraising page. Then download the Move Spring app and link to your favorite fitness tracker. It takes a few minutes and then you are ready to go. A new adventure! 

SHARE

A key part of the event is reaching out to your community to engage sponsors for your walking goal. Make sure to personalize your fundraising page, reach out to friends and families and create incentives to get as many donations you can!

WALK

Get those steps in! We will open the event before May 19th – the 17th – so you have plenty of time to walk your 20 miles, or more if you want! Make sure to share your progress and challenge others to join you! 

Although the official Event is June 19 and 20, we will go live in Move Spring on June 17 and keep it open until June 22. 

In addition to the Walk we are also hosting:

SILENT AUCTION

This year we are hosting another silent auction with a wonderful variety of artwork, treats and teen-inspired items for your bidding interest.

One of the highlights is hand-designed and painted metal watering cans created by the teens on the East and West Coasts. We feel deeply grateful for their creative inspiration. 
The auction is live! Just go HERE!

PLEASE NOTE: THE AUCTION AND RAFFLE ARE ON A SEPARATE SITE FROM THE WALK REGISTRATION. IT IS ON GALABID. YOU WILL NEED TO SET UP A DIFFERENT LOG-IN THAN DONOR DRIVE. 

RAFFLE

Not sure how you want to participate? Well if nothing else grab a few raffle tickets to win some awesome prizes. This year it is a special creation from our teens! 
The more tickets you get – the better your chances. The raffle is hosted on our Auction page. Grab your tickets HERE!

Grateful to my teenagers who truly made a difference in changing lives. Our youth are our future! These teens really stepped up and raised money to change thousands of people’s lives in Kenya and India. They are true leaders and if we continue to support them in seeing the value of supporting those who don’t have clean water and those less fortunate then what will their future look like in 50 years. Grateful to all of you who showed up and helped with Walking for Water. Who donated and participated. Grateful especially to Carlyle Coash who helped in such a huge way! Thankful to Sobonfu who opened my eyes up over 20 years ago to truly see clearly the value of water on many levels and Robert Strock and Global Bridge who supported the teens and myself in many ways. To Phen-Dey and Love Tribe Project, and My Chosen Vessels for being our coIlaboration. It is never too late to donate #wisdonspring.org #walking4water_ #makeadifference #help ...

When Sobonfu Somé went to my daughters school in Leesburg,Virginia she spoke about how she had to walk for water up to 6-12 hrs and it was dirty water. A teenager at the time Kristen Karinshak Wood called and said they walk for water why can’t we. So out if the mouth of a young person the walked was created. 18 years now teens have continued to create projects and walks and haved put in 34 water wells educated thousands of children. This year these teens have created a virtual walk and they are raising money to put a pipeline in Ambesoli, Kenya to bring clean water to 7,000 Maasai people and also 2 water wells in India, to bring water to a Tibetian refugee camp and in the south of India at Hindu, Muslim, Christian village. Help these humanitarian teens from both the East Coast and West Coast save lives. Go to wisdomspring.org/virtual to join walk, silent suction and raffle. #wisdomspring #walking4water_ #makeadifference #livingyourgifts #wisdomspring.org/virtual ...

VIDEO FROM TWO NEW WELLS

We have video of two of our newer wells that were placed in Southern India for two villages whose community is part of the untouchable caste. These wonderful communities are vital and we trust these new wells will be with them for a long time.

We are deeply grateful for our ongoing partnership with the Phen-Dey Foundation. Our hope is for many more wells in the future.
