Get Involved

Thank you for your support!

We welcome you to get involved in the Water Walk in one of the following ways.

Host a Fundraiser at your School, Work, or other Organization

While registering for the 2011 Water Walk is an important step towards bringing clean water to the community of Karagwe, that is only a starting point for how you can truly make a difference!   We encourage you to host a fundraiser at your school, work or other organization in order to further educate the community and to raise additional funds for Amizade’s clean water initiatives in Tanzania.  Ask your doctor, dentist, friends, family and anyone else in your network to support your cause.  Please read our Fundraising Packet for ideas and materials that can help you to host a successful fundraiser.  This year we will be awarding prizes to the person/group that raises the most money, so go ahead and get started now!

Organize a Team of Participants

Coordinating a group of participants is a great way to support the Water Walk.  If you are a student, consider speaking with a campus organization about sponsoring a team.  Many student organizations will even pay a portion of the registration dues.  If you are a member of the workforce, consider putting a team of employees together.  Participating in the Water Walk is a great opportunity to socialize outside of the office!  Create a group of family members, friends, or fellow church members.  Groups of 15 or more are eligible for a discounted registration fee of $8 per person, so start getting your group together today!

Donate a Raffle Prize

This year we hope to have a great selection of gift certificates, baskets and other prizes to raffle off on the day of the Water Walk.  All raffle proceeds will support Amizade’s clean water initiatives around the world.  This is also a great opportunity for local establishments to increase their visability in the Pittsburgh or Morgantown community.  If you are well connected to a local business or have a suggestion for a raffle prize, please contact katie@amizade.org.

Become a Planning Committee Member

We welcome you to join either our Pittsburgh or Morgantown Water Walk Planning Committees.  This is a great opportunity to have a leadership role in our event planning while also acting as a liason between Amizade and your group or organization.  Contact Katie at katie@amizade.org for more information.

Become a Water Walk Volunteer

Please consider volunteering on the day of the Water Walk.  We will need volunteer assistance with setup, registration, raffle ticket sales, directing the crowd, obtaining water, and cleanup.  Contact Katie at katie@amizade.org if you are interested in volunteering!
