Walk for Water, founded by Sally Smith and sponsored by Rotary Club of Estero, generates funding and awareness for a clean water and sanitation project in Santa Eulalia, Guatemala. The people who live there must walk far and navigate mountainous terrain while carrying heavy pails filled with water, often balanced on their heads. This event helps people of all ages and from all walks of life realize how fortunate they are to have toilet facilities and inside running water. Several attendees came from outside our local community to participate in this year’s Walk for Water — as far as Guatemala and Honduras. This is the fourth year for the event, but the first time it has been held at Koreshan State Park.
