INTERAns Run for the Water
INTERA employees donned their running shoes to join more than 1,000 participants in the Gazelle Foundation’s 10th annual Run for the Water. The charity run included 5-kilometer, 10-mile, and children’s 1 kilometer races that took place in downtown Austin, TX. INTERA runners included Tricia Johnson, Gloria Teague, Joe Galemore, Jevon Harding, and Mary Wilkins (pictured from left to right). Proceeds from each entrant’s contribution furnished one individual in Burundi, Africa, with a lifetime supply of daily access to clean water. To date, the Gazelle Foundation, a non-profit organization, has provided 60,000 Burundians with access to water by laying more than 90 miles of pipeline in 30 completed projects. More information is available at gazellefoundation.org. This event marked INTERA’s second year of participation in the run, adding the race to INTERA’s other annual charity participation efforts such as the WellAware Shower Strike and the Lantz Invitational Golf Tournament.
