1:00 PM Ignite Fundraiser 663 million people in the world live without clean water. That's nearly 1 in 10 people world wide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

This year, Ignite at UC San Diego is helping to tackle this problem. generating approx. $26,000 in funding for clean water projects with Charity: Water. Join us in experiencing the struggle of not having access to clean water and help spread awareness to support more clean water projects around the world.

Charity: Water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Millions of people around the world walk hours each day to collect dirty water. Access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids. Water Walk invites guests to walk a fraction of the distance in someone else's shoes to experience it for themselves.
