Spokane Project Team Supports Bloomsday Runners


Newsletter_2017_July_ BloomsdayThe Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility project team took on Bloomsday 2017 in Spokane, WA by sponsoring and volunteering at Water-aid Station #5. The Bloomsday Run is an annual timed road race held on the first Sunday every May since 1977. The course is 12 km (7.46 mi) long. Bloomsday also supports a designated charity every year with this year’s charity being World Relief Spokane.

This year’s volunteers were a huge help as nearly 47,000 runners were registered to run the race. Bloomsday volunteers pride themselves on producing a safe, exciting and enjoyable experience for all, which is why MWH is so passionate about volunteering at this event and in the Spokane community.

“Bloomsday is a celebration of health, fitness, and community,” said Katy Perrino, communication manager at MWH. “As a member of the community, we’re so proud to be a part of such a long standing tradition in Spokane.”
