Carthage Water & Electric Plant (CW&EP), is hosting a fun 5k run & 1-mile fun run, in honor of Drinking Water Week! This is an important week set aside each year to help bring awareness to the Carthage community of the benefits of tap water, that a safe, reliable water supply is critical to the success of any community. This week gives a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives. We always look forward to celebrating this week with our Carthage community and can't wait to race you to the finish line!
WHERE ARE THE FUNDS GOING?
All proceeds from the run will be donated to Water For People, and organization that exists to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all. To learn more about Water For People, visit their website ➡ https://www.waterforpeople.org/
The course will start at the South CW&EP Water Tower, on George E. Phelps Blvd., and takes you down past the Main St. Water Tower then back around to a fun finish at the South Water Tower. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating!
