Short review

Welcome to The God Water Run for the Thirsty 5K! The exciting 5th year of this event will once again start and end at Schererville's beautiful Redar Park and run throughout the neighborhood to the east. Whether you race for a trophy or walk with a friend, this 5K is all about the cause. All of the net proceeds will go to God Water, a local Christian nonprofit that provides access to clean, safe drinking water for the people of Liberia, Africa where 50% of communities only have access to diseased water.
