From 4th to 10th March the charity Care International is asking people take part in a charity walk, Walk in her Shoes. The idea is to walk 10,000 steps a day each day for one week, to raise money for Care International and raise awareness of the distance women in developing countries walk to collect water. Did you know that 6km is the average distance girls and women in developing countries walk to collect water for their families?
To register for the walk costs £15, and they’re asking participants to raise a minimum of £100. To give you an example of what Care International can do with the money raised, £100 can provide water and sanitation for a class of school children for 2 years! If you want to take part, but can’t manage the walk during the 4th – 10th, you can pick any week in March to participate!
