Walk 4 Water

Walk 4 Water

Walk 4 Water and the Running Water 5k is an annual event to raise awareness and funding for providing clean water sources for people in need in Haiti and Africa.  The event did not have a web or social media presence.  They were relying solely on flyers, print materials, and paper/mailed registrations.  Consequently, their event did not have the reach they wanted.  The goal of this project was to not only create a website, but also help them expand their reach through social media and online initiatives.  We created a website to feature event information and announcements, and also accept online registrations.  In addition, we helped them establish social media accounts to promote their event and encourage participants to share.  The response was so positive, the very next year they added a 5k event, in addition to a “virtual 5k” so that people could register online and participate in the event from anywhere.  Through their online presence, this event has grown considerably every year.
