Posted on

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – September 24, 2016 – Watermill Express, the nation’s largest drive-up pure drinking water and ice company, donated 75 gallons of pure drinking water to 3rd Annual Triumph Over Kid Cancer Foundation’s “James A. Ragan Giddy Up! Race”. The goal of the James A. Ragan Giddy Up! Race is to bring more awareness to pediatric cancers.

Each year, over 10,000 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer – children with a full life ahead of them. Instead of going to school with friends and playing sports, they are forced to undergo surgery and various rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. The mission at Triumph Over Kid Cancer is to raise awareness of the horrors of pediatric cancer and the lack of funding it receives, and raise money to fund research into pediatric cancer.

“Thank you Watermill Express for helping make the 3rd Annual James A. Ragan GiddyUp!Race a success,” said event organizer Kesley Lancon. “With over 1,000 runners and their families present, the amount of wasted single-use water bottles was considerably reduced. Everyone serving water at the finish line had a smile on their face and a positive attitude!”

Approximately 568 single-use plastic  water bottles were kept out of local landfills due to Watermill Express’s participation in this event.
