Quench your humanitarian thirst on May 4 at East Beach, where the youth-driven nonprofit Hands4Others (H4O) will host its 2013 Walk4Water event to fund potable, sustainable drinking water around the world. All it takes is some action and your trusty pair of walking shoes.
Challenging young people to join the movement to avert the world’s water crisis, H4O has provided clean water to over 100,000 people since its humble beginnings in 2008.
“What started as an idea on the back of a napkin has grown into a worldwide movement of young people excited to step outside of their own world and help others in need,” says 16-year-old H4O founder Spencer Dusebout.
Those interested in H4O’s worthy cause are encouraged to participate in this year’s Walk4Water, where contributors plan to fund and raise awareness for water filtration systems in parched communities across the globe.
