A charity run in July in Arizona might seem like an exhausting experience, but Dan Hill’s project from his Landmark Self-Expression and Leadership Program has found a unique way to beat the heat and raise money for a school for homeless children. A 5k ‘splash mob’ run will have runners bombarded by 25,000 water balloons pre-filled by area children.
The event is on July 20th at the Big Surf Water Park in Tempe, starting early at 7am to further keep the heat away. A $35 registration fee goes towards the Children First Academy, a ranch school for homeless and underprivileged children in Central Phoenix and the East Valley.
