Come help carry the water! Everyone is invited to bring the water container of choice. Run/walk halfway. Fill it up. And, carry it back. Once across the finish line empty it into a common pool for corporate sponsorship. All proceeds provide clean water projects in India. Did you know 900,000 people a year die in India from drinking unclean water?

​The event will be held at Dorothea Dix in Raleigh, starting at 10 am. Participants can chose to enter the mile or 5K.
