Walk Through Downtown Supports Clean Drinking Water

About 250 estheticians and stylists from 15 Aveda salons across Manitoba will be marching today in support of clean drinking water in foreign countries.

The fifth annual I Walk for Water event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Manitoba Legislature and make its way east up Broadway.

The five kilometre walk will support clean drinking water in Africa and help support WaterCan — a non-profit organization dedicated to ending poverty by helping the world’s poorest people gain access to clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education.

Walkers will end up at City Hall between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., eventually returning to the Legislature.

Aveda Canada’s goal this year is $400,000 for clean water rights.
