The participants in the 2018 Walk4Water gather for a group photo outside of the James D. Beville Community Park pavilion prior to the start of the event. This year's Walk4Water will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Organizers of the eighth annual Grayson County Walk4Water are currently seeking sponsors for the upcoming event.

Last year's Walk4Water raised $12,565 to build a clean water well in Haiti, and also saw 58 individuals gather at the James D. Beville Community Park pavilion in Leitchfield to take part in a walk of solidarity to honor individuals in developing countries who must walk an average of 4 miles per day to collect clean drinking water.

This year's Walk4Water will be held once again at James D. Beville Community Park, and will kick off at the pavilion at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Event organizer Mark Claypool said he is seeking $5 sponsors to assist the fundraiser, and encourages those wishing to help to write a check to Healing Hands International and mail it to him at 112 West Walnut St., Leitchfield, KY 42754.

The local Walk4Water is part of nationwide initiative by Healing Hands International, a faith-based organization that seeks to support developing countries.
