My sister challenged me to do this trip. I registered and was immediately embraced by the BLUE community thru a welcome meeting, training plan, meet-ups for training, as well as shopping and packing tips. The staff take care of you every step of the way. The trip is challenging but the reward of succeeding at it is amazing. I was so proud of myself and the people who trekked in front of and along side of me. This is an experience like no other. The friendships you form along the way are powerful. More importantly, walking the path that so many Dominicans make prompter me to realize I need and want to help people less fortunate. The water crisis is real and we must do our part to ensure everyone has access to clean water. Support BLUE for all that they do!
