About This Activity

Co-Chairs for ONE DROP's Walk for Water are Missy Franklin, America competition swimmer and four-time Olympic gold medalist, Forrest Griffin, UFC Hall of Famer and Former Light Heavyweight Champion, and Jenna Morton, Morton Group and Springs Preserve Board of Trustees Vice Chair.

Come join us on Saturday October 5 for the Walk for Water to help raise awareness and funds and pay tribute to the millions of women and children – particularly girls - who spend several hours daily collecting water. This sometimes dangerous and physically challenging job also takes a lot of time, time that is not spent at home caring for family members, working at an income generating job or attending school.

 This walk - an initiative of Scott Stevens, Head of Carpentry at KA - kicks off at South Point at 8am, and is 5.6 miles along Las Vegas Boulevard. There will be water stations along the way staffed by volunteers from local organizations. A rally point will be set up; where walkers can join in if they don’t want to walk the entire 5.6 miles. The last 2 miles will be a celebration where the number of walkers will grow leading us to Mandalay Bay. All participants will wear specifically designed blue ONE DROP shirts and all together will be”painting the Strip blue”. The end ceremony will be at Mandalay Bay starting around 10:30am concluding at 12pm.
