Gazelle Foundation Walk For The Water is a 5k walk designed specifically for Academy for Global Students (AGS) at Austin High School. On March 8th, 2019, students will fetch water from Lady Bird Lake using water jugs. The students will then walk the three-mile loop carrying these jugs to simulate the average distance that people in developing countries walk in order to get water.
Prior to the walk, each student will fundraise on behalf of the Gazelle Foundation, a local non-profit organization that builds clean water projects in Burundi, Africa. All money raised will provide Burundians access to clean drinking water - for life!
