On Saturday, October 22, over 40 runners laced up their shoes to run on a brisk, early morning and support the EWB Nepal team. These runners came to participate in the second annual Runners Without Borders 5K, which is hosted by the EWB Nepal Team and takes place on the University of Florida campus. The 5K was a fun experience for all of the participants, whether they were seasoned runners or the average person just looking to come out and support a great cause.
The male and female winners were awarded prizes, and there were several other prizes raffled off that added to the fun. These prizes included gym memberships, gift baskets, and other prizes donated by our sponsors.
The 5K was an immense success, with numerous sponsorships and participants helping to raise over $1,800 that will go straight to enhancing the water irrigation system established by the EWB team in Nepal. The EWB Nepal team thanks all of our participants, volunteers, and corporate sponsors for helping us make this 5K a great success. We couldn’t have done it without them!
