BFCCPS student fund raising for Walk4Wells

Walk4Wells is a program run by Plan USA that raises money and awareness for people in third world communities that do not have local clean drinking water. Women and children in this situation have to walk an average of 3 miles a day just to get water, even if it isn't the cleanest it can be. 
Walk4Wells uses the money to install wells in the communities in need. Wells access water that is naturally filtered in underground water chambers. Franklin is community that also depends on well water like many other communities around the world. 
Right now, they are working in Burkina Faso, an African country that suffers greatly from this issue. People like us can raise money for them by hosting walkathons for their communities.
