High school students stage run to help humanity’s water woes

The Franklin Blue Planet 5K for Clean Water, a charity run, will be kick off at 9 a.m. August 6 in Franklin.

The run is hosted by the Franklin High School Interact Club. All proceeds will go to the Blue Planet Network to provide access to clean water for people around the world who desperately need it.

The race starts at the Tassee Shelter on the Little Tennessee Greenway.

Early registration is $20 and race day registration is $25.  A light post-race brunch will be provided by Riverblaze Bakery and Jer’s Kitchen. The first 100 registered participants get a premium, eco-friendly T-shirt made in America from 100 percent recycled materials.
