EGHS UNICEF Club’s Water Walk – The high school’s UNICEF Club is holding the annual Water Walk for our community Fry Brook Recreation Area (EGHS trail). The Water Walk is to advocate, fundraise, and raise awareness about the impacts of the global water crisis still present today in many countries around the world. If you, friends, or family members have an interest in experiencing what children and women around the world experience on a daily basis from not having access to clean water then please fill out this Google Form by Tuesday (3/23). We have about 28 people so far and would love more to join! Ask yourself and others if they’re up for the challenge walking 4 miles in only socks and sandals while holding a heavy bucket. Although it may sound difficult, it will be a fun challenge and the experience will be rewarding in the end. *Reminder masks must be worn at all times.* If you have any questions or concerns, please email [email protected] or text (401)527-6270. More information about this event will be sent out on a mailing list to those who are interested.
