Finley Johnston is a 10 year-old boy on a mission to raise awareness and funds to bring clean drinking water to the poorest regions of the world’s developing countries.
After reading, A Long Walk to Water, and interviewing Ryan from Ryan’s Well Foundation, Finley knew that he needed to take action. He learnt that kids his own age have to walk eight hours every day in the heat just to get a jug of unclean water for their family to drink.
Finley decided that he needed to go on a walk of his own.
As of May 25th, Finley has raised $2,215.37 for Ryan’s Well Foundation, and he has walked over 306 km’s.
By Saturday May 30th, Finley hopes to walk 350 km’s.
