Runners—are you fast enough to walk on water?
The event benefits The Water Project, a non-profit organization that aids communities around the world without access to quality water. The Water Project has helped more than 125,000 people receive better access to water, according to a release from the sorority.
The communities aided include those in Kenya, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Rwanda, India and the Sudan, according to the release.
On-site registration is available for the event, but those who pre-register by June 1 receive a Walk on Water t-shirt. Pre-registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children under 18. Day-of registration is $25 for adults and $15 for those under 18.
An information and registration packet can be found here.
Those unable to run can also donate to the cause here.
The run begins at Tydings Park, sending runners along Commerce Street before a turn up Market Street, turning toward the Susquehanna River on Lafayette Street, left onto Concord Street, left onto Girard, right onto Market and bearing left onto St. John Street. After a short time on Union Avenue, runners will take Water Street to Erie Street before a left turn onto Juniata Street for a 15-block straight-away before a left turn at Alliance Street, followed by a right onto Stokes, before finishing back at Tydings Park.
