What the Heck is 4 Miles 4 Water?

Living near one of the Great Lakes, it’s easy to take water for granted. We have such an abundance of it (especially this week) that we don’t even realize there are parts of the world where people have to walk 4 miles just to access water that, oftentimes, is dirty and unsafe.

Drink Local Drink Tap is a local nonprofit that inspires people to recognize and solve water issues through education, events and providing safe water access to people in need. One such event is the 4 Miles 4 Water Run/Walk happening this weekend (May 6th) at The Greater Cleveland Aquarium and Jacobs Nautical Pavilion waterfront from 8 am-1pm. It’s a fun family affair featuring games, brunch, Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar (for grown-ups,) and a performance by the African Dance Troupe Passport Project.

It’s a great event for an even greater cause and you’re already wet, so what’s stopping you? Embrace the rain, appreciate our water and learn how to help those without our wonderful resources. How far will you go 4 water?
