      Comments: Aa a part of the walk, volkssporters will have the
      opportunity to carry a small amount of water from the Columbia River to
      the Pearson Air Museum, a distance of about 1.2 km. The water will be
      measured and the walkers will be informed on the amount they were able
      to carry. Donations from this walk will be used to help sponsor a water
      well in Africa. The well will cost $12,000 US but there is a matching
      grant so it is hoped that $6,000 can be raised by the various groups
      that are participating. $35 provides a lifetime supply of water for one
      person. With the matching grant, that means for every $17.50 raised, one
      person will have water for their lifetime.
