Members of UNC’s Engineers Without Borders (EWB) make a practice run before the Sept. 16 “Run to Make Water Run” 6K race. Left to right are Jennifer Casanova and Johnny Kim (master’s students, environmental sciences and engineering), Blythe Carter (undergraduate, mathematics), Stephanie O’Daly (undergraduate, environmental science) and Lauren Snyder (master’s student, maternal and child health).

EWB sponsors the event each year to support its local and global engineering and development projects. Why a 6K? That’s the average distance women and children in the developing world walk each day to collect household water.
