The 2018 Walk for Water is set for 9:30 a.m. October 13. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 303 South Main Street, Kilmarnock.

For a $10 contribution, participants will experience what the women and children in Third World countries do several times a day by carrying a bucket from Grace Church down Waverly Avenue to the Chesapeake Boat Basin, fill it with water and walk back, reported Walk for Water representative Glenn Cockrell.

People willing to participate will be contributing to a Living Water Sustainable Treatment System that will purify up to 10,000 gallons of contaminated, disease-laden water daily, said Cockrell.

Anyone unable to make the 3.5-mile walk may support the mission with a donation payable to Water Mission. Mail the donation to Glenn Cockrell, P.O. Box 125, Irvington, VA 22480.
