On Sunday April 21, 2013, Youth Action Hudson held our 2nd annual Water Walk as part of Camp St. Croix’s Earth Day Celebration. The Water Walk aims to raise awareness of the water crisis that is affecting millions across the world.
In addition to walking a 5k (3.1 miles) course, participants carried jugs filled with water to simulate the walk that millions of women and children in developing countries are forced to take every day to provide water for their families. Despite the chilly weather - we had a great turn out at the Earth Day celebration. Eight participants completed the walk and gained a new perspective on water security! A big thank you to Camp St. Croix, our wonderful youth volunteers, and all those who came out and helped us celebrate Earth Day!
This year, YAH students decided to donate any proceeds to charity:water – a nonprofit organization the helps provide clean and reliable drinking water to communities in developing countries. Our Youth Advisory Board at YAH chose charity:water because they provide status reports, pictures, and GPS coordinates for projects, which allows both our students and donors to see the accomplishments of their contribution.
