DEL MAR — Torrey Pines High School Interact Club raised almost $5,000 for the nonprofit organization “Water for Sudan” at their “Walk for Water” fundraiser last month.
The club decorated walkways and provided water and homemade snacks for participants of the walk. Even though it rained outside, more than 100 people completed the walk inside the Torrey Pines High School media center.
“No Fear” also donated printed T-shirts for all participants of the event.
The proceeds of the fundraiser will be donated to “Water for Sudan,” a nonprofit organization that drills well holes in South Sudan to provide clean and safe water to remote villages.
Charlie Reed, vice president of the Interact Club, organized the walk. Last year, Reed raised $2,600 for “Water for Sudan” by having friends, sponsors and donors come to hear volunteers from the organization speak about their trips to South Sudan drilling the water wells.
As a reward for their hard work, members of the Torrey Pines High School Interact Club will have their names stamped on the next well to be drilled in Sudan by the nonprofit group.
