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 provide 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.
Pedego Electric Bikes 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.
