Running to save the Sparta Aquifer
Several area residents braved the cold last Saturday morning to drink up an opportunity that will help save the area’s primary water source.
This was the second year for the Sparta 5K Run to be held, only this go-around it was at Lincoln Parish Park. The last run was in 2010 at Squire Creek.
Funds raised from the event go to the Sparta Foundation to support efforts to educate children about water issues, including conservation.
