In addition to raising money, Emma and Mia also hoped to raise awareness about the trek that many Kenyan women and girls go through daily in order to have water to survive.
At the event, participants experienced what that trek is like by starting at Elizabeth Rabbitt’s ranch in Del Mar Mesa and walking a half mile to Duck Pond to fill their empty buckets and carry them back.
Members of Female Athlete Volunteers, Emma is a senior at Torrey Pines High School and Mia is a freshman at Canyon Crest Academy. Rabbitt, their neighbor, is a frequent volunteer for Maranatha in Kenya.
