Water.org 6K Race

May 6, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Interact does a race to raise money in early May and we’re currently putting together a press release and we were trying to see if we could put something on the Chamber calendar? I figured I could ask you since you’re on the board. I’m including the press release in the bottom of this email.

Every 90 seconds a child dies from a preventable water-related illness somewhere in our world.  Although this water is carrying diseases, women walk an average distance of 6K to gather this water for their families. This is why Harwood’s Interact Club will be sponsoring the Water.org 6K Race to raise funds for Water.org.  Water.org is a nonprofit organization combating the global water crisis issue. They help educate people about the necessity of sanitation, build wells with local community members, and teach the community how to maintain the wells.

Join  the Water.org 6K Race Saturday, May 6th. There will also be 1K and 3K options for children. The race is being held at Harwood Union High School on the cross country trails. Registration opens at 8:30am and closes at 9:45.  The race will start at 10am.  Registration fees:  $25 per adult, $15 per student (ages 8-18). Because this is a student-run and led event, we will not be able to take credit cards.  Only cash and checks will be accepted.  Hope to see you there!

For more information feel free to contact Madeline Strasser at mstrasser2017@wwsu.org, Emma Cosgrove atecosgrove2017@wwsu.org, or our faculty advisor, Ellen Berrings, at eberrings@wwsu.org or 882-1167.
