2017 BIG BUNNY 5K BENIFITING CHARITY: WATER
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2017
Show your support for creating a positive, healthy, connected community and welcome this spring at the annual Big Bunny 5K. Whether you’re a competitive runner, active walker, or just looking for a fun activity to do with your friends and family, anyone can participate in the 5K. There is even a special Kids Fun Run for anyone age 7 and younger. Five dollars of each registration fee will go to support the work of charity: water to help bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.
663 million people in the world live without clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep kids out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick. But access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids. Five dollars of each registration fee for the Big Bunny 5K will go to support the work of charity: water to help bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world.
