Engineers Without Borders USA strives to create solutions to problems in developing countries through working with communities. The Nebraska Professional Chapter and the University of Nebraska Student Chapter are partnering to raise money for our projects. The student chapter works in Madagascar and Zambia. In Kianjavato, Madagascar we are installing solar-powered lighting systems in the schools. Near Zimba, Zambia we will be constructing a foot bridge that connects the community to the health clinic and market days during the rainy season. The professional chapter works in Malagana, Colombia. We are working with the water system to treat the waste water. This year, we hope to finish our preliminary designs and alternatives analysis for a wastewater treament and sewer system.
Our Fun Run is the biggest fundraiser we do every year. As the name implies, it's a lot of fun! You can choose from a 3k, 5k, or 10k and you can walk or run. Whatever you choose, after you are done enjoy pancakes from the Pancake Man. You will need to sign a waiver when you purchase your ticket. We are so grateful for your support in our work, and we can't wait to see you there!
We'll start checking in people at 8:00 am. Runners will start at 9:00 am and walkers will start at 9:15 am. Once you are finished and have worked up a good appetite, join us back at the start where the Pancake Man will be waiting with flying pancakes!
