Wells of Life will present its fourth annual Run4Water 5K and 1K on Sunday, April 22 at Laguna Niguel Regional Park. Run4Water is the single largest fundraiser for Wells of Life which funds water wells for poor villagers in Uganda, Africa. In addition to the timed 5K & 1K runs, Run4Water features a festival with exhibit booths, give-a-ways, food booths and entertainment.
Run4Water organizers aim to recruit 40 teams to fund 40 wells at a $6000 cost per well. Each well provides clean water for 1000 people for up to twenty-five years. All non-well expenses are raised through private donations and fundraisers, so 100% of the well production is funded by donors.
Individuals can participate for $40/entry for the 5K, $25/entry for the 1K and virtual
participants are $25/entry. All registered participants receive an official race time,
t-shirt and medal.
Fountain Valley-based Pedego Electric Bikes is a corporate supporter and has donated an
electric bike valued at $2295 as an opportunity drawing prize.
