RICHLAND, WA- Sharehouse Coffee hosted their 2nd annual Water Walk today. 

The walk raises awareness of countries that do not have clean water.

People carried 10 gallon buckets of water which weigh around 20 pounds.

They then had to walk a short distance while carrying the water.

Sharehouse Coffee works with Living Water International and employees said it is an important issue that people don't know enough about.

“What we're doing here is just a really small taste of having to walk a short distance with buckets of water,” Sims said.

Sharehouse says there are nearly 783 million people who do not have clean drinking water around the world.
