Chico Event Photographer: Walk For Water
It is always incredible to photograph weddings and people, but there is something different about photographing an event. Especially an event that is working to change the world. On Saturday, I was honored to team up with Bridging the Gap and capture the 4th Annual Walk for Water event here in Chico. The event works to build awareness of water deprivation and raise funds to provide safe water around the world. To call this a life changing event, is an understatement. People begin the day in Bidwell Park with empty water buckets. At the start of the walk, the crowd fills their buckets with water and completes either a 3k or 5k walk with full water buckets. Along the way, they may stop at different stations, each station educating people a bit more on the water problems across the globe. It is pretty amazing to watch the park fill up with people carrying water buckets.
To learn more about this event and see what Bridging the Gap is doing in our world and how you can help, please visit their website here. It is quite incredible!
We had some great corporate sponsors of this event. Many thanks to all the businesses that helped make this possible.
As everyone finished their walk, we saw the fruition of so much hard work come together. Shirley presented over 30,000.00 worth of checks to both World Vision and Individual Organizations helping to make a difference in this world.
And at the end of the day, we have these amazing people to thank. As founders of Bridging the Gap, Shirley and Grant are doing amazing things in an effort to provide water to so many around the world. You guys are awesome!
