A Christian youth group in Montgomery County took a walk for water on Sunday.
The purpose was to let people know about others in the world who don't have clean, running water readily available.
They started with empty buckets in hand on the Huckleberry Tail.
About 50 members of the youth group at Belmont Christian Church gathered to take the lengthy walk that is typical for a child in Zambia, Africa.
A trip to retrieve water for their family.
"Most of the children there have to walk about five miles a day. So, our youth group today is going to walk 2.5 miles down the Huckleberry Trail carrying empty buckets to a water source there," said Brandon Craig, youth minister at the church.
And they'll have to lug it back.
The chief reason for this: to raise awareness for the water crisis in Africa.
"Sometimes the watering holes are surrounded by wild animals. And the girls have to walk there alone. Women and girls. it's considered women's work in many areas of Africa," explained Sunday school teacher, Makala Witten.
So, they started walking and 2.5 miles later - water!
After filling up a bucket or two comes the tough walk back.
"I think that we're just so lucky here that we don't realize what people have to go through over there just to get water and it's not even clean," said Emily Stewart, a member of the youth group.
"It just kinda hit hard thinking about children in Africa not having water and we spend so much time worrying about having clean water and filters and bottled water," added another member, Amanda Joyce.
