Event Highlight: Running Water 5K/10K Race

We are gearing up for our next event and we want everyone to know about it!  We have partnered with PackH2O, a Columbus non-profit that provides ergonomic backpacks to water distressed communities.  The backpacks safeguard against contamination, improve access to drinking water, and support families to ensure their basic needs are met, especially for women and children.

To support PackH2O and increase awareness of their mission, we are hosting a 5K/10K at The Ohio State University.  Individuals can complete the 5K/10K; for folks looking for a challenge, teams of four can run the 10K carrying one of the backpacks filled with water to know what it is like to travel miles to provide clean water for families.  Teams of four can challenge another team of four for bragging rights and show off how tough they are.

NPR recently published an excellent piece on what we are talking about, check it out here.

Regardless of which option you choose, you will be supporting a socially conscious with an international non-profit, get some killer exercise, and impact people across the globe.  If you are interested, check out the details below:
