WORLD TOILET DAY is November 19, 2017! Complete your race anytime in November.If you’ve ever participated in a running event, you know that the longest lines are usually the lines for the Port-a-Potties! Perhaps you’ve been out on a long run or walk, and the site of a toilet is the greatest thing you’ve even seen! Many would say that a toilet is a runner’s best friend.November 19th is World Toilet Day. Here are some facts to consider:650 million people in the world do not have access to safe water. 2.3 billion people don’t have access to adequate sanitation, one in three of the world’s population. More than 500,000 children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That’s over 1,400 children a day! In honor of World Toilet Day, we are hosting our third annual World Toilet Day 5K!wateraidAlong with celebrating RUNNING, we will also be donating at least 15% of every registration to, an amazing organization that provides clean water and toilets that are essential for life. For every $50 donated, they are able to provide a toilet for two families. Let’s see how many families we can get toilets for! at:
