Quoting the well-loved African proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” – we are asking you to get together and get behind a brand new fundraising challenge called The BIG Walk.
Everyday people we work with in Kenya are walking long distances to collect water for drinking, cooking and cleaning. They have no option but to collect from contaminated ponds, streams and rivers. We are working to change that.
Join in The BIG Walk from wherever you are in the world. Take part as an individual, as a family, with friends or work colleagues, schools or clubs. Make it a one off event or make it a regular challenge throughout the summer months.
We have chosen 10,000km – the distance from Cork to Kenya – as the target to reach between now and the end of October.
Of course you can run, swim, paddle your own canoe … any form of movement that will cover a distance!
Log the kilometres you cover on your iDonate fundraising page. Then watch the virtual map as our team marker moves along the route from Cork to Kenya and collectively we reach 10,000km!
