SUMMIT, NJ - Revivify in Summit is partnering with Equinox to host and sponsor an 'Operation Water Walk' event on Saturday, May 18, at 8 a.m. The event will see participants carrying 22 kg. of water in two buckets from Equinox to Revivify and then back to Equinox.
For those not making that journey, Equnox -- located at 68 River Road -- will offer a quarter-mile short course as well as the opportunity for walk-ins to do a 22-step personal challenge between 8 - 10 a.m.
According to operationwater.org, 663 million people, about 9% of the global population, lack access to improved drinking water sources, with 48% of those people live in sub-Saharan Africa. In 21 countries, more than one third of the people do not have access to clean drinking water; 16 of those countries are in sub-Saharan Africa.
In areas of the world where sustainable, clean water is scarce, women carry 20-25 liter buckets of water from wells to their homes multiple times each day just to meet their family's needs. One liter of water weighs 1 kg., so they are carrying approximately 22 kg.. of water.
Revivify will supply the buckets for the walk, and there is no cost to participate. A suggested $22 donation to Operation Water -- funds that will ensure that one individual will have sustainable access to water for their entire life -- is suggested.
Resolving to end the global water crisis in next 30 years, Operation Water's mission is to deliver clean water solutions to the greatest number of people in need, at the lowest cost per person, by developing sustainable infrastructure projects.
