As a school we will be completing the Walk for Water Challenge during Lent this year, in place of our weekly challenges. Our aim is to virtually walk to Ethiopia from our school, this will help us show our support for people who must walk for 5 hours per day to get water.

From Mount Carmel to Ethiopia, it is 5752 miles. This means that we would have to walk collectively as a school nearly 137 miles per day to reach Ethiopia by Easter Sunday, the end of Lent.

We would love it if you could record your exercise using the Mount Carmel Strava Page, this will be linked to our JustGiving page and will let us track the miles we have done collectively.

We would also love it if you could get people to sponsor you to complete this challenge on our JustGiving Page, even just £1 would really help us to reach our target.

You can donate to Our JustGiving page by clicking here: Mount Carmel Just Giving page

Weekly prizes will be awarded to those who have travelled the furthest and those that have raised the most money for CAFOD.
