We revisit the 2013 TEDxRVA experience with RVA Grooves.

Relive TEDxRVA 2013 through the Real Time Book, created on site the day of the event.

On March 22nd 2013, organizers of TEDxRVA stood before 20 volunteers and asked them to carry 40 pounds of water a half of a mile. In words, this seems trivial.  In action, it is an ode to those less fortunate that live this existence, or one more strenuous, every day. The Charity Water Walk served as a reminder of how fortunate we are and how much can be taken for granted without a second thought.  The Walk cultivated spontaneous teamwork among strangers as it was not a race but a group effort to raise awareness about the struggles faced in various parts of the developing world.  The video below illustrates the willing and able participants that seem only slightly intimidated at the beginning of their trek, only to follow them to their fatigued and humble finish.
