Run 4 Water

April 28 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

Fountain Valley, Calif. (April 1, 2019) – Wells of Life will present its fourth annual  

Run4Water 5K and 1K on Sunday, April 28 for the first time at Mile Square Park in Fountain  

Valley. Run4Water is the largest fundraiser for Wells of Life which provides clean water to  

the people of Uganda, Africa. 

 

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. 

 

Fountain Valley-based Pedego 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. 

 

Individual entries are $40 for the 5K and $25 for the 1K. All registered participants who are present will receive a chance to win the Pedego bike, an official race time, t-shirt and medals for 5K entrants.
