Netafim sponsors smart irrigation run, walk

Updated Feb 19, 2013

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. The run/walk also brought local attention to the national water conservation program.

The event was on July 16 and drew nearly 150 participants, raising more than $5,000 for the hospital. Netafim also prepared Smart Irrigation take-away bags for participants that included SIM T-shirts, water bottles and tips about efficient water use in homes and businesses. Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin proclaimed July “Smart Irrigation Month,” and the city provided water-saving tips for distribution at the run/walk event.

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. For more information, visit
