Innovative Canadians for Change (ICChange) is hosting the 9th Annual Kenya Run for Water with a return appearance at Edmonton's beautiful Emily Murphy Park! 

ICChange is a movement of interdisciplinary professionals aiming to improve the quality of life and security of vulnerable populations through innovative and sustainable solutions. One ICChange initiative is the Kenya Ceramic Project (KCP)/CeraMaji. The goal of KCP is to improve access to clean drinking water through the sustainable production of ceramic water filters that remove 99.9% of bacteria and other organisms. Your participation will help raise awareness and financial support for this important project. By expanding production and building effective ceramic water filters and making them available at an affordable price, we can help alleviate the burden of disease caused by water born illnesses.

Choose from a variety of activities, like running or walking the 5km route, running the 10km route, or competing with friends in a FREE 100m water relay. Keep your heart healthy, your interest piqued, and your community engaged by supporting a local organization with international impact! Enjoy live music by DJ Sean Lamb, delicious food from generous local eateries, and massage treatments from Corona Station Physical Therapy. 

Register before July 18th, 2016 and pay only $35 ($40 post-earlybird deadline). Plus, be entered for earlybird prizes! 

Register a team of 3-5 people together and save $5 per person - that's only $30 per person before July 11th and $35 per person after July 11th! Collect pledges now to boost your chances of winning some amazing door prizes in the months leading up the the event. 

Were also excited to announce our partnership with the Chimp Foundation! To fundraise, take 3 minutes to head to the Chimp website, make a profile, and give directly to the event, support an athlete, or create your own fundraising page.
