We Are Water Foundation and Craigendarroch Suites, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club and Craigendarroch Lodges, Managed by Hilton Grand Vacations join forces to kick off the second edition of “Walkathons For Water” with 21 walks in 21 European cities in Spain, U.K., France, Italy, Portugal and Austria. These charity walks aim to reduce the distance for children in their search for water and give them the opportunity to have a more dignified life. It is a special event due to its charitable nature, but also because of its significant distance: 6 kilometres is the average distance that millions of children in Africa, Asia and Latin America must walk every day to fetch drinking water. For every kilometre that is walked during these Walkathons will help to shorten the distance for those searching for water.

The Walkathons will help raise funds to support two aid projects to bring drinking water and sanitation to more than 5,600 beneficiaries in India and Tanzania. In India, funds are being raised for the construction of domestic toilets in 50 households in the indigenous Irular community (Ranipet, Tamil Nadu), while in Tanzania the project will provide sustainable access to safe water for the village of Kwedizinga (Tanga region).

The Walkathon will start at Craigendarroch Suites, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club – Braemar Rd, Ballater, Royal Deeside, Scotland AB35 5XA – on Tuesday, July 9 at 11 a.m. and the walk will be around the Moorland area. At the end of the Walkathon, participants are invited to enjoy some fun activities including a raffle.

To register, simply access the “Walkathons For Water” 2024 website and register with a minimum donation of €5, or register directly onsite.
