What is the Water Challenge?

The Water Challenge is WaterAid's annual fundraising event during March, coinciding with World Water Day on 22nd March.

Choose your Water Challenge this March, improve your health, and help provide lifesaving safe water in some of the world’s poorest communities.

  • Drink just water
  • Walk for water
  • Goals for Water: Netball support event 11 – 17 April

Find out more here.

And if you can't take the Water Challenge in March, your unit or district could have their own Water Challenge later in the year, find out more about the importance of clean water and donate the funds raised to WaterAid!
