WHITEWATER – Local company Whitewater Manufacturing, Co. has re-enlisted as title sponsor of the Discover Whitewater (DWS) Series: Half Marathon, 5K and W3 Fit Kid Shuffle for the ninth consecutive year.
The day of the race is scheduled for Sunday, September 19. The support of local businesses and community members is what allows this event to thrive year after year.
Whitewater Manufacturing is a fourth generation family business that works in assembly, welding, engineering, turning and milling, supply chain management and more. Their support has enabled DWS to donate $ 204,500 to local charities since its inaugural year in 2013.
These charities include: Bethel House, Whitewater LEADS, Working for Whitewater’s Wellness, Whitewater Unified School District, and the J-Hawk Aquatic Club.
In addition to giving back to charitable partners, Whitewater Manufacturing’s contributions have allowed DWS to expand their marketing efforts, showcase Whitewater, and most importantly, create a fun and engaging sporting event for area runners. Each year, the DWS brings in runners from all over, including the Chicago area.
As a certified race by the Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA), the DWS presents a challenging event that takes place to high sporting and safety standards.
“We are very grateful for the generous support Whitewater Manufacturing has been able to provide us over the past nine years,” said Jeff Knight, Executive Director of DWS. “They have been such a pleasure to work with, year after year, helping us deliver a fun event for the community and attract runners from all over.”
