Fourth Annual Run4Water Aims to Fund 50 Water Wells in Uganda
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA, UNITED STATES, March 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wells of Life will present its fourth annual Run4Water 5K and 1K on Sunday, April 28 for the first time at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. The Run4Wateris the largest fundraiser for Wells of Life which provides clean water to
the people of Uganda, Africa.
Event activities include a USATF sanctioned 5K run, 1K run/walk and a post celebration with awards program, exhibitors, give-a-ways and entertainment.
Wells of Life is an Orange County-based nonprofit organization that provides access to clean, sustainable drinking water for communities in Uganda. Their 2019 Run4Water goal is to fund 50 wells. One well costs $6,000 while each well provides clean water for 1000 people for up to 25 years. All non-well expenses are raised through private donations, so 100% of donations go directly to drilling and maintaining their water wells. Wells of Life also provides sanitation
measures and hygiene education.
Fountain Valley-based Pedego returns as a major Run4Water sponsor providing funds for one well and a classic comfort cruiser Pedego electric bike valued at $1895. The winning entry will be drawn out of Run4Water entrants and announced at the end of race day program.
Individual entries are $40 for the 5K and $25 for the 1K. All registered participants who are present will receive a chance to win the Pedego bike, an official race time, t-shirt and medals for 5K entrants.
Mile Square Regional Park is located 16801 Euclid St. in Fountain Valley, Calif. Free parking is available and participants should take the Edinger entrance on the north side of the park then follow the signs to the event.
