Over 900 people across England & Wales have signed up to the Walk for Water Challenge this Lent. Are you ready to join them?
Provide fresh and clean water, shelter and food for vulnerable families overseas by walking, dancing, hopping, or skipping 10,000 steps for 40 days!
Walk for Water is the only Lent challenge you need: 10,000 steps a day – done your way. Every day. For 40 days. Could you use your exercise or outdoor time to join Abdella in solidarity and make a profound difference across the world? Go the distance this Lent and help to end water poverty.
You don’t have to get tied in a knot about how to do it: whether you hop it, skip it, slide it, run it, jump it, dance it, stamp it, stomp it. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just as long as you put your heart and soul into it!
Lots of individuals and parish volunteers from around the Brentwood Diocese have signed up. Pauline, from English Martyrs in Danbury, is taking part along with her fellow members of the Justice and Peace group. Pauline is no stranger to long walks, last year she walked the St Peter’s Way pilgrimage route for CAFOD’s Summer of Hope campaign. But you don’t need to be a particularly strong walker, you can make up the steps in other ways. Just do what you can. If you are unable to get out at the moment, then join us is in solidarity and please pray for CAFOD’s work. .
