The 2nd annual Franklin Blue Planet 5k race was a prime display of the community coming together to show their support of a global cause. The Blue Planet Network helps provide safe drinking water through what is known as the Peer Water Exchange where people can review and learn from each other’s work and get funding to start their own clean water projects.
“The event went extremely well, I couldn’t be more pleased,” said Canyon Woodward, the organizer for the race. “The overall support from the community was nothing short of spectacular.”
Hosted by the Franklin High School Interact Club, the running portion of the race began at 9 a.m. at the Tassee Shelter on the Little Tennessee Greenway, followed by a one-mile fun walk/run, with more than 100 participants for both events.
