Summer looks a little different for everyone this year. To keep each other safe, our annual Walk for Water events won’t be happening. We’re going to miss seeing everyone, but we’ve got some exciting new initiatives taking place!

Here’s a look at what’s happening – and how you can get involved from the comfort of your own home:
