HN 5th Graders Walk-A-Thon Benefits Water for Sudan Organization

Written on May 19, 2021

The fifth grade class at Hardin Northern had a 3 mile Walk-A-Thon and fundraiser after reading the book A Long Walk to Water.  

The book highlights the need for fresh and clean water in third world countries, specifically in Sudan, Africa.  

The fundraiser totaled $290 and will be sent to an organization called Water for Sudan created by the book’s main character.  

The class walked 3 miles because that is the average amount walked to find clean water in Sudan.  

The fifth grade class thanked everyone who donated.
