More than 500 local youth experience journey millions of women and children around the world make every day in search of clean water

20% of the world’s population, or 1.2 billion people, lack access to safe drinking water

PCI (Project Concern International) is raising awareness about the global water crisis by hosting its annual Walk for Water 5K this Sunday at Tecolote Shores. Participants are invited to experience the journey millions of women and children around the world make every day to provide clean water for their families by walking up to 5 kilometers with buckets of water. As San Diego struggles with its own water crisis, this event highlights the global crisis of clean water, and water used in the Walk will be taken and returned to the Bay.

Rachel Church and Arya Tayebi are serving as the chair of this year’s Walk for Water and Mark Mullen from NBC 7 San Diego will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.

Funds raised will support PCI’s water and sanitation programs and efforts to end poverty worldwide.

This event is open to the press, and interested reporters and outlets must RSVP.
