Netafim USA put the spotlight on Smart Irrigation Month by sponsoring a Smart Irrigation Month Run/Walk that raised funds for Children’s Hospital of Central California and brought local attention to the national water conservation program.
The run/walk was held on July 16, drawing nearly 150 participants and raising more than $5,000.00 for the hospital. Netafim also prepared Smart Irrigation take-away bags for participants that included SIM t-shirts, water bottles and useful tips about efficient water use in homes and businesses.
Additionally, through Netafim’s efforts, Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin proclaimed July “Smart Irrigation Month” and the city provided water-saving tips for distribution at the run/walk event.
“This was an excellent opportunity for community members to participate in Smart Irrigation Month while helping benefit Children’s Hospital, the second largest children’s hospital in California,” said Nasreen Riahizadeh, marketing coordinator at Netafim USA and event organizer.
“By helping focus attention on the goals of Smart Irrigation Month, Netafim was able to raise the awareness of the value and practical aspects of smart water use.”
Along with Netafim, race sponsors included Weight Away Medical Clinic of Clovis, and Ideas Plus, Sierra Packaging and Pacific Paper Tube of Fresno. All sponsor proceeds were donated directly to Children’s Hospital.
Netafim extended the company’s Smart Irrigation Month focus by including water-saving tips on the company’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
