July 3, 2015, Oakville, ON – Grundfos Canada’s 3rd Walk for Water event will help bring clean drinking water to communities in need.

The Grundfos 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
and Africa to build wells that will provide residents with clean,
sustainable drinking water.

This year’s event will be held Sept. 19, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Lion’s Valley Park in Oakville, Ont.

“We
walk the 5 km trail 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,” Simon Fedeema, president of Grundfos, wrote in an
email announcing the event. “We know we cannot quickly solve the global
water crisis, but with your help, we can save lives and give
communities in need clean, sustainable drinking water."

Over the last two years, Grundfos has raised more than $15,000 toward the cause. This year’s event aims to more than double that amount, with a fundraising goal of $20,000.

"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,” Feddema
continued. “Grundfos Canada continues to work alongside them and other
Grundfos companies in North America to spread awareness about the global
water crisis and provide an opportunity so that we can help in
providing more wells and clean water for those in need.”
