Over the weekend, more than 20 members of the Doherty team participated in the 2016 Walk for Water event at Upper Landing Park in St. Paul. Doherty was a key sponsor for the event, which serves to spotlight a vital issue in the world today: the global water crisis. The goal of the event was to raise money and awareness for people around the world who need to walk several miles daily to supply water to their families.
During the Walk for Water on Saturday, participants were asked to carry an empty bucket for a distance of 1.5 miles and fill it with water from a pool that is unsafe to drink from. Walkers then carried their full buckets 1.5 miles back and dumped them into a water treatment system, demonstrating the lengths people around the world must go to acquire potable water.
The event was a fun and rewarding experience for all - thanks to all who participated!
