McFarland Lutheran Church fundraised to fund a water well in Uganda this weekend, through its annual Walk4Water benefit walk held on Saturday, Sept. 25.

The church has raised more than $15,000, to fund building a water well in rural village Aboliya Uganda.

Reverend Tim Dean, senior pastor at McFarland Lutheran Church, talks with walkers as the annual Walk4Water for Uganda begins at McDaniel Park …

More than 70 walkers participated in the three-mile walk at McDaniel Park, with a dozen virtual participants as well. The three-mile distance represents the average distance people in rural villages in Uganda must travel to obtain water, a release from the church said. 

The church will continue its fundraising efforts through October, hoping to collect $21,000, enough to build a second well.
