Overview

NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED
 

As our NC Governor has asked for all assemblies of 100 or more to be postponed or canceled we are hereby postponing the World Water Day 5k until our next 5k in the Fall of 2020. We regret any inconvenienced incurred. We sincerely appreciate every runner, volunteer, and sponsor for your investment in clean water for India. As a local nonprofit charity we have already incurred expenses toward the event. It would be a great support to not refund registrations. Soon we will announce opportunities for runners to pickup their t-shirts and metals at a local merchant as these have been dated for March 21, 2020. We would love for everyone registered to receive one! We are also offering runners the opportunity to hold their registrations until the Fall 5k (Date TBA). Thank you for your continued support as together we raise funds and awareness for clean water for India. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone effected by the Coronavirus.

Come run and help India Carry the Water:
Join us in transforming thirsty villages in India with clean water solutions. All money raised provide funds for clean water projects in india that enable women to pursue job and educational opportunities instead of having to walk for miles to fetch water; insure men have reliable water sources for their crops and livestock; allow children to enjoy the sweetness of a good bath and clean water so they can grow up healthy and strong.
