Starting at the South End (Locust Grove) of the Indy Canal Walk walkers take their empty 5-gallon buckets on a 1.5 mile route to the North End of the Canal Walk. At this halfway turnaround point, walkers fill their buckets and make the 1.5-mile return trip with their full (or partially full) bucket of water.
This 3-mile Walk is symbolic of the typical daily walk made by millions of Africans every day to fetch water for their families. The Walk takes between 60 to 90 minutes to complete.
The cost to participate in the Walk For Water is $25 for Adults, $15 for Students (12 to College) and Kids walk free (11 years and under)! This year we are selling separately the Walk For Water t-shirts for $15 so we can reduce the participation costs. All proceeds go directly to help fund JVP’s next Community Safe Water Project in western Kenya. (Registration deadline purchasing t-shirts is Sat, July 15).
All Walkers are encouraged to help the Jubilee Village Project meet our one-day goal of raising $15,000 by raising funds via sponsors or making a donation of their own. Donations may be given online.
