In 2000, SAWS created Project Agua to assist qualified families in need with water utility payments and to ensure that every citizen of San Antonio has access to clean, affordable water. Since its inception, Project Agua has helped more than 5,000 families in need.
The first 100 participants to register will receive a technical T-shirt; all other runners will receive a cotton T-shirt. by Monday, May 21, to be guaranteed a race T-shirt.
After you complete the SAWS 5K, head over to the Farmer's Market at Pearl Brewery and rehydrate San Antonio-style at the Basil Fest.
Basil will be in the spotlight during a "Thirst Quenchers Challenge," featuring local chefs, caterers, et al. whipping up their best basil-inspired aguas frescas. Festivities begin at 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Best of all, you get to be the judge!
The recipe that collects the most donations wins. Proceeds benefit Project Agua.
