Melrose Park, IL 10/31/2013. After raising over $4000 in 2012, students at Walther Christian Academy took on an even more ambitious goal of $5000 for this year's September 29th event. The motivation for the increase was the desire to provide five fresh water wells for five villages overseas. These wells will decrease the need for mostly women and children to walk an average of four hours per day to retrieve this precious resource for their families. This extra time and energy would then be available for such poverty-fighting tasks as attending school and beginning small businesses.
