The Harford County Alumnae Chapter (HCAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is doing its part to make a positive impact on the international community. The goal of this year’s ‘5K Water Dash’ is to assist the millions of men, women, and children who do not have access to the most essential element on God’s earth, WATER. Proceeds to benefit The Water Project.Org.
According to The United Nations.Org, nearly 1 billion people suffer needlessly without access to safe water. Nearly 80% of illness in developing countries is linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Help us change lives…dash with us.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 5k Water Dash will be a virtual race. Your registration will still help to deliver clean water to Africa.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Registrants will run, bike, or swim their distance at any location they choose on April 3, 2021. If you are participating in the 5K and would like to be listed in the results make sure you track your distance and time. You can do so with a watch or app. Make sure you complete the whole distance of 3.1 miles for a 5K. You will then be able to report your time.

Top 3 overall male and female runners, bikers, and swimmers.
If you intend to compete for overall awards, you will need a method of recording your time and distance - a GPS watch, phone app, or a treadmill. To maintain the integrity of the competition as best as possible all award winners must submit photo proof of GPS/run data to verify time and distance (photo of the treadmill with time & distance, photo screenshot of a run tracker, etc.) Award winners will be emailed when the results submission period closes and asked to reply with their photo/screenshot. You MUST run, bike, or swim the full distance (3.1 miles). If a result cannot be verified, the award will roll down to the next participant.
All awards will be virtual gift cards.
