On May 9, 2009, students and their families from the Boyd School of Virginia came together in A Walk for Water. A Walk for Water is a yearly event that gives students a chance to work together in solidarity for the people of the Azawak who walk as much as 30 miles in a day in search of water. The students raised close to $700 for Amman Imman: Water is Life, whose mission is to build borehole wells and provide water, thereby improving and saving lives.
Students and their families gather at Elanor Lawrence Park in Chantilly, Virginia.
