April 2014 - Earth Month for Water
The Lake Champlain Committee is partnering with area salons to promote water protection and conservation. Check back for information on Spa Nights, cut-a-thons and other events to raise awareness and money for water.
April 30, 2014 - Walk for Water
Hosted by AVEDA and the Lake Champlain Committee
Meet at LCC's office
208 Flynn Avenue, Burlington, VT
9:00 - 11:00 AM
Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $25 that will benefit LCC
Join AVEDA representatives, local stylists and others for the Walk for Water. The walk is part of AVEDA's global initiative that acknowledges the daily struggle of more than one billion people around the world who do not have access to clean water. The Lake Champlain Committee is a global AVEDA partner in this effort to raise funds and awareness about the need to protect and improve water quality.
The walk will start at 9:00 AM at LCC's office at 208 Flynn Avenue in Burlington and will be about six kilometers in length - the average distance women in developing countries walk to collect water each day.
So step out with the stylists, bring your friends and family and join in a waterfront walk for water. You’ll get some exercise and pick up some water tips along the way. All are welcome!
