You’re Invited! ATA Walk For Water This Wednesday 5pm
As part of the 2017 Playing for Glimmer Campaign, players, coaches and families of ATA (Austin Tennis Academy) are participating in the annual ATA Walk for Water on Wednesday, Dec 6 at 5:00 p.m. We will meet at the creek behind ATA and kids and adults can take a turn carrying water in red Jerry cans.
The Walk for Water is a way to experience what life is like for women and girls in Ethiopia who fetch water daily for their village, oftentimes walking several hours with a jug or jerry can weighing close to 40 pounds!
The ATA has helped Glimmer of Hope for many years and several families have traveled to Ethiopia to see completed projects (water wells, schools and health posts) that were funded by ATA efforts.
Former ATA student Breck Spencer visited Ethiopia and took the actual walk; you can see his video here:
In addition to raising awareness through the Walk for Water, several players are raising funds for this year’s Playing for Glimmer Campaign, click here to see them all.
We hope to see you on Wednesday!
