The Walk for Water is a fundraising event
developed in partnership with Water Missions International. The initiative aims
to raise money for impoverished communities in South and Central America to
build wells that will provide residents with clean, sustainable drinking water.

"Water Missions International has been working with
Grundfos in many projects over the past five years and is using our pump
technology to provide life sustaining clean water to those who need it the
most,” said Simon Feddema, president of Grundfos. “Grundfos Canada is working
alongside them to spread awareness about the global water crisis and provide a
fundraising opportunity so that more wells and clean water can be provided.”

The walk takes place Aug. 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Lion’s
Valley Park in Oakville. Participants will be encouraged to start the
five-kilometre walk with a water bucket, fill it with water at the halfway
point and carry it to the finish to experience what many must do each day to
survive.
