Take the Water Challenge in 2016: WaterAid

WaterAid has launched its first ever Water Challenge for 2016. Challenge yourself to make ‘just water’ your only beverage for 14 or 30 days this March, or take the original ‘Walk for Water’ challenge and walk or run your way to good health between March 14-20.

Coinciding with World Water Day on March 22, the Water Challenge is WaterAid’s annual fundraising event. Choose your Water Challenge, improve your health, and raise money to help provide lifesaving safe water to the world’s poorest communities.

“The Water Challenge is a terrific opportunity for people to get healthy while supporting WaterAid to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people in the world by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene,” said WaterAid Australia Chief Executive Paul Nichols.

The Water Challenge is free to enter and there are several ways you can get involved:

Drink Just Water: Water is essential for life and good health. Challenge yourself to make ‘just water’ your only beverage for 14 or 30 days in March, to improve your health and raise money to help provide lifesaving safe water to others.

Walk for Water: Get active this March and take the original Walk for Water Challenge. Set your personal distance goal and walk or run your way to good health between March 14-20. 10,000 steps is the average distance walked by the world’s poorest women and children to collect water each day. 10,000 steps is approximately 7 kilometres, or 90 minutes of walking.

WaterAid is also proud to partner with Netball Victoria and the Melbourne Vixens. As part of our annual Water Challenge, netball teams can participate in Goals for Water, between April 11-17.
