A LONG WALK TO WATER FUNDRAISING CONTEST
Our members and environmental rockstars, Sofie Biglin and Ben Cermeno, created this video to inform others about Salva Dut's story and the global water crisis in South Sudan. They also informed students and members of our community about our "A Long Walk To Water" fundraising contest and Salva's presentation at the Lyric Theatre on March 25, 2020.
The impact made through our "A Long Walk to Water" Fundraising Contest was extraordinary! We are so proud to share that the total fundraised by the participating schools was $21,630.61 and we will have a well in South Sudan!
Congratulations to the following schools!
1st place- Hidden Oaks Middle School
2nd place- Felix A. Williams Elementary School
3rd place (tie)- Bessey Creek Elementary and Palm City Elementary
To all of the students who held lemonade stands, donated their allowances and tooth fairy money, and fundraised in other creative ways, YOU are the unsung heroes of this initiative, and we thank you and are so proud of you for uniting with us as GoalKeepers to Think Global and Act Local! To the teachers and administrators involved, we are beyond grateful for your outstanding leadership and unwavering support. You are AMAZING!
