Hey Everyone! Please come support a 5k that I am organizing for the UWM Chapter of the Milwaukee Water Council in honor of the United Nations World Water Day on March 23. It is more of a symbolic race-I don't think it will be chip-timed but we will be keeping track of winners and hopefully handing out some cool prizes for local businesses!
Here's a quick overview:
In 2013, for the second time, Milwaukee is going to celebrate United Nations World Water Day.
Please join us in the Second Annual event on Saturday, April 6, 2013! Sign up before March 20 to receive a t-shirt!
The 5K walk will symbolize distances traveled to access water in other parts of the globe. This time we have added a 5K run category as well as category for carrying buckets of water.
It starts at 9am at Veterans Park near the coast of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. From there we will run/walk along the lakeshore of Lake Michigan - Veterans Park, McKinley Marina, Lakeshore Drive, and back to Veterans Park.
We are looking for volunteers to help with set-up, registration, and directing participants along the route.
If you have any questions-please feel free to ask me (Caroline)!
