In order to help you recruit participants for your walk and to raise the media profile of the World Walks for Water and Sanitation campaign, you might like to consider enlisting the support of a high-profile celebrity. The celebrity could be famous locally, regionally, nationally or internationally and could be an athlete, actor, model, sportsman, journalist, author or even a TV star.
