When: The Lug-a-Jug is now virtual!  Pickup your race shirt, your jug, and other goodies on Friday, August 6 between 6:00-8:00 PM at the Genesis Waters office parking lot at 6650 Crossings Dr., SE.  Then walk or run with us anytime that next week (August 6-13) that works for you, and map out your own 6K path.  

Why 6K? The average woman or child in Africa and many parts of Asia walks 6 kilometers to fetch their family’s daily water needs. We’re asking you and your family/team to do it just this once, but those we provide water to do it every single day!

Why Lug-a-Jug? We are encouraging you to form a team or do it as an entire family!  We will be providing you with a jug of water at race packet pickup day.  Your team is then being asked to somehow get this one jug of water the entire 6 kilometers.  You can strap it to yourself, carry it on your head, take turns carrying it, attach wheels to it, or carry it on your favorite donkey or camel!  Bonus points for creative lugging!  Post pictures of you/your team and your jug as you do the race on our Genesis Waters Facebook page or @genesiswatersworldwide on Instagram with the hashtags: #ItAllBeginsWithWater #LugAJug #GenesisWaters

Where: The packet pickup will be at the Genesis Waters headquarters–located at 6650 Crossings Dr SE, Grand Rapids, MI  49508.  The office is located on Kalamazoo Avenue near the intersection with M-6 and across the street from Wendy’s.

Cost: The Run is $30 per participant, which includes a race t-shirt, race bib, a water jug and some other little goodies.  All profits from the race will go directly towards providing a water well, so that at least one village of people no longer has to walk this far to fetch their water.

How else can you help? We are encouraging all participants to raise sponsors for your participation in the event. You can have your sponsors donate online or write checks out to Genesis Waters. We will send you more information on how to do this after you register yourself. This will increase the impact we can have on both providing clean water and spreading the Gospel!
