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:
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!
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!
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:
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.
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!

Through June 19th and 20th we will have a Video Event available to stream featuring a host of fun and informative content collected by our teens on the East and West Coast. You can watch it anytime on those days! Just check it out at the top of the page.

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.
