Fleet Feet Sports Scottsdale Summer Water Drive
Fleet Feet Sports Scottsdale hosts its 2nd annual water drive to raise hydration awareness and provide water to the homeless and homebound of Phoenix.
WHO: Fleet Feet Sports Scottsdale, OSR Physical Therapy, and Water for Our World to benefit Phoenix Rescue Mission.
WHERE: Fleet Feet Sports Scottsdale, 18261 N. Pima Road STE E-135, Scottsdale, AZ 85255
WHEN: Saturday July 25, 2015 from 6:30am-5pm
WHAT: This water drive is being held to increase awareness of the heat related deaths that occur in Maricopa County. Last July alone, there were 39 heat related deaths and the total number of Arizona deaths each summer hovers around 100. Excessive heat warnings were issued for 12 days last summer and those days typically correlate to the highest numbers of deaths. Although the statistics show that we are doing much better at providing information and water to the homeless, the homebound population is still at a very high risk. The public is invited to drop off a case of water to Fleet Feet Scottsdale during the hours noted and Phoenix Rescue Mission will distribute to people in need with the help of Water for Our World . There will be a family-friendly fun 5k run starting at 6:30am. Games, giveaways, free running analysis and more will follow the run. Related awareness information and hydration tips will be provided by Fleet Feet Sports.
INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES: Video, photo and interview opportunities with participants and event organizers will be available. If you are interested in attending or have any further questions please contact Jeremy Heath at 870-897-9266 or firstname.lastname@example.org
