The water cooler has long been the hub of office socialising, but now is your chance to take it to the next level!

Sign your workplace up to the Water Challenge and ask your colleagues to make water their only beverage for the month of March. Not only will it help Karen kick her caffeine habit and Evan end his addiction to energy drinks, you’ll help provide clean water to those who need it most.

While taking the Water Challenge, ask your friends, family (and workmates) to sponsor you. The funds you and your workplace raise will support WaterAid’s mission to transform the lives of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

While switching your coffee run to a water walk may sound tough, doing the challenge with your workmates beside you will help with team bonding- and create a healthier workplace.

After the challenge last year, 68% of participants said that they intend to drink water more often than they did prior to the challenge. And 51% said they intend to give up or greatly reduce their consumption of non-water drinks.

Prefer a week-long or fortnightly fundraising event instead? Why not Pass the Glass’ and share the month amongst team members throughout the month of March

So ‘water’ you waiting for? Sign up now or create a team and ask your colleagues to join you in raising a glass to the drink that nobody should have to live without.
