Franklin 5k for Clean Water in Africa

Written by 

The Franklin Blue Planet 5K for Clean Water will be held Saturday, Sept. 4, along the Little Tennessee Greenway.

The Interact Club at Franklin High School is putting on the race to raise money for the Blue Planet Network, which brings clean water to rural communities all over the world. Roughly one-sixth of the world’s population does not have access to safe drinking water.

The race will start from the Tassee Shelter on the greenway at 9 a.m. There will be a 1 mile fun run/walk as well.

Overall male and female winners get a pair of running shoes from Brooks. Entry fee is $20 in advance or $25 on race day and includes a light brunch featuring fresh fruit, freshly-baked bread and gourmet hummus donated by Riverblaze Bakery and Jer’s Kitchen.  First 85 to register get an eco-friendly T-shirt made in the U.S. from 100 percent recycled materials for the first 85 registered participants.
