Workout. Raise Awareness. Give Clean Water.
This World Water Day, WorldServe International is engaging the CrossFit community in a challenge with a deeper meaning. The goal is to walk 3 miles carrying a 40lb jerry can full of water.
Why? Because the World Water Crisis is effecting over 844 million people. And not only that, but women and young girls are responsible for collecting whatever water they can find in nearby puddles, rivers and hand dug wells. On average these women walk 3 miles a day, carrying 40lbs of unsafe water home to their families. We are walking for them!
