The Institute of Water Rising Stars are completing a 22,000 step (12 mile) walk around London on Tuesday the 29th October, starting at WaterAid Head Office, Durham St, Vauxhall at 13:00, to raise money for WaterAid, all dressed in water related fancy dress, including a toilet!
Around the world, 1 in 9 people don’t have access to clean water within or close to their home. This distance is to emulate the distance that mothers and young children have to walk every day to collect water.
Those living without this everyday essential do not have an equal chance to be healthy, educated and financially secure.
WaterAid has reached 27 million people with clean water so far, but there is still a long way to go.
The Institute of Water Rising Stars are a group of Water Sector professionals who have been identified as being new industry talent and given the opportunity to develop their skills.
By doing this walk, the Rising Stars will be raising money and awareness to support this cause; they will be walking past Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, London Eye, Horse Guards Parade, The Mall, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford St., Regent St., John Snow Water Pump, Leicester Square, Somerset House, St Pauls Cathedral, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, Golden Hinde, Shakespeare’s Globe, and Westminster Bridge.
