The Group's Purpose

We are a group of friends who enjoy: laughing, discussing ideas, eating, drinking, being outside, holding babies, and learning about the world around us. On Saturday, June 6th we plan to do most, if not all, of the aforementioned activities while WALKING FOR WATER with our friends at ACTS. What does this mean exactly?

I'm so glad you asked!

Walk For Water is an event put on by ACTS to raise awareness for millions of Ugandans who don't have access to clean water. ACTS is committed to building clean water systems in Uganda which we think is particularly awesome because it ends up freeing Ugandans (mainly women and children) from disease and needless labour.

On June 6th we will walk 6km (round trip) through the Mt. Pleasant neighbourhood, to fetch clean water (full jerry can = 40lbs!!), and raise awareness for our friends in Uganda.

For more info about the event, follow the link below. Spoiler alert: there is going to be a really fun BBQ afterwards!
