Grundfos Denmark walked for water in amazing weather
August 17th Grundfos hosted the first local walk in Bjerringbro. Despite the weather more than 130 colleagues, friends and families showed up to support the good cause, and together we walked around the river Guden. The walk is made to resemble the journey many women and children in impoverished countries undertake each and every day to collect water for their family.
8 in 10 people who collect water in impoverished countries are women and girls. It is often a dangerous journey for them, and the time they spend collecting water, is time that could have been spent in school or working to provide an income for the family.
Creating awareness about these issues and raising funds to solve them is what we can do, so that is what we did! We had an amazing day, and we hope others will join next year, and make the event even bigger.
Join our next walk in 2020!
