Aaron Tremblay was on the air with WGNS' Scott Walker on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, to talk about an upcoming walk that will be held for something that most of us don’t think twice about, even as we use this powerful life-saving resource daily - - Water. Healing Hands International, in conjunction with numerous local churches, schools, and other community partners, are coming together to hold the inaugural Middle Tennessee Walk 4 Water in Smyrna.

Tremblay, a minister in Rutherford County, said that donations raised at the October 16th walk will help fund the construction of wells in South and Central Africa, areas where people don’t have access to clean water. Specifically, funds will go towards building wells in Malawi and Zambia.

The upcoming walk on Sunday, October 16th is free for participants and will start and end in the parking lot of a local Smyrna church at 112 Division Street. The event will be on that Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. Tremblay stated, “The four-mile walk through Smyrna will also raise awareness throughout Middle Tennessee about the need for access to clean water around the world.”

The walk is a symbolic 4-miles. Tremblay told us, “There are people in the world who have to walk an average of four miles each day to draw water, which is often not sanitary.”

FREE Registration is available online at Each participant receives a free t-shirt and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference in an underserved area. “Clean water changes lives,” Tremblay added. “We hope to have record attendance so we can make a major difference around the globe.”
