Hiking Our Way to Safer Drinking Water in 2011

On a Saturday in October 2011, the DC Water For People Committee once again hosted a hike-a-thon at the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission’s Rocky Gorge Reservoir in Laurel, MD.  Hikers traversed five miles of the watershed around the reservoir, including walking along the shoreline, as well as the local horse farms, to raise funds for much needed water and sanitation projects.  Our four legged furry friends were out in full force too, almost outnumbering the humans this year!  Before the hike, Ana Kolodzinski, Director of Communications from WASH Advocacy Initiative, addressed the crowd and briefly talked about the international water crisis.  She also gave answers to several of the trivia questions which were asked along the route.  After the hike, everyone enjoyed a light lunch and a random drawing was held for great prizes.

A chance to exercise and help others!

Thank you to everyone who hiked, volunteered, and supported this fantastic event!
