On Saturday, August 13th, Aqua-Africa will host their second annual Aqua-Run in Elmwood Park. All of the proceeds from the race will go towards the installation of a new water system called “Village Supplier,” which will provide clean water for over 5,000 South Sudanese.

Aqua-Africa's Buey Tut talked to Michael Lyon about the run and the challenges faced by families in South Sudan to get clean water.
