Netafim USA put the spotlight on Smart Irrigation Month by sponsoring a “Smart Irrigation Month Run/Walk” that raised funds for Children’s Hospital of Central California and brought local attention to the national water conservation program.
The run/walk was held on July 16, drawing nearly 150 participants and raising more than $5,000 for the hospital.
Netafim also prepared Smart Irrigation take-away bags for participants that included SIM t-shirts, water bottles and useful tips about efficient water use in homes and businesses.
Additionally, through Netafim’s efforts, Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin proclaimed July “Smart Irrigation Month” and the city provided water-saving tips for distribution at the run/walk event
Along with Netafim, race sponsors included Weight Away Medical Clinic of Clovis, and Ideas Plus, Sierra Packaging and Pacific Paper Tube of Fresno. All sponsor proceeds were donated directly to Children’s Hospital.
