Run for a Cause
Did you make resolutions to eat healthier and exercise more? Or did you resolve to heighten awareness of a worthy cause? If the answer is yes, then get ready for the Chasing Leaks 5K Run/Walk.
The Water Department has partnered with the Fort Worth Runners Club (FWRC) to host the 5K Run/Walk and 1K Kids Fun on Sunday, March 15 at Trinity Park Pavilion #1. The race kicks off the Environmental Protection Agency's Fix a Leak Week, which begins March 16.
Each year, more than a trillion gallons of water is lost to leaks nationwide, with many of those associated with leaking, worn toilet flappers. Yes, that small flapper can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day.
If you want some exercise while heightening awareness to fix those flappers and other household leaks, please register for the Chasing Leaks 5K Run/Walk.
5K Run/Walk @ 8 a.m.
Pre-Registration Prices: FWRC Members $8; Non-Members $12
Race Day Prices: FWRC Members $10; Non-Members $15
FREE 1K Kids Fun Run @ 7:45 a.m
