The Run for Water will take place on Saturday June 9th at St. Patrick’s Island and includes a 10 km Run, 5 km Run and Walk, and a Kids Fun Run.
- The Run for Water Foundation raises money for clean water projects in Ethiopia. This year, all funds raised will go towards the completion of a well in Sheni Kondala in Oromia where local school girls have inspired their community to raise 10% of the cost needed. Clean water is the most basic necessity and the clean water that the Run will provide will not only drastically improve the health conditions of the community but also enable the girls to stay in school rather than spending 5-6 hours per day collecting contaminated water.
The small size and beautiful route makes the Run for Water a great opportunity to test your fitness level, chase down a new PR, or to get your Saturday training run done, all while raising money for an important cause.
