Hermosa Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2014
A walk along the beach could change the lives of thousands. On Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 8:00 am – 11:00 am, the South Bay and surrounding communities will come together to support The Samburu Project with its 5th Annual Walk for Water & Pancake Breakfast event. The Walk will commemorate March 22’s World Water Day by focusing on the drought that affects both Kenya and California and how people can make a difference globally and locally. The walk will take place along a 4-mile loop from Hermosa Beach Pier to Manhattan Beach Pier and back, beginning and ending at American Junkie Restaurant, located at 68 Pier Avenue, Hermosa Beach. Participants can register directly online at WalkforWater2014.org
The Samburu Project’s Walk for Water, sponsored by Chase Bank, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, American Junkie, Mike Rossi of NW Real Estate Brokers, Fit-On Studios, Waiākea Water, LaLicious, Mixed Up Clothing, and JOL Design Inc., is a fun, family oriented event and a great fundraiser. The first walk took place in 2009 and it is becoming one of the South Bay’s favorite activities. Families, local service clubs, students and local business teams all participate in support of The Samburu Project’s efforts to provide easy access to clean, safe drinking water to communities in Northern Kenya and to spread awareness about the World Water Crisis. Participants will receive pledges from supporters and walk 4 miles along the beautiful and famous seaside strand. Metropolitan Water District’s Kid’s Corner will highlight issues around the global and local water crisis, inspiring participating youth and their families to take action by becoming water conservationists. Radio Disney will provide entertainment. The event culminates with a hearty celebratory breakfast and raffle at American Junkie. Registration fee is $30 (student, family, and team registrations vary).
World Water Day is held annually on March 22nd as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
