Walk for Freshwater at Golden High School

There will be a Walk for Freshwater this Saturday from 3-5PM at Golden High School.  Can you imagine getting up early in the morning to fetch water for your family from a dirty stream, then walking miles and miles home with a heavy bucket, and then having to go to school? In Malawi, Africa, this is the reality for millions of students.  Participate in or donate to this Saturday’s walk at Golden High School!
