The American River Parkway Foundation has received a $30,000 donation from the running organization Sacramento Friends in Training, the foundation announced Wednesday.

SacFit, which sponsors the annual Parkway Half Marathon, has raised approximately $200,000 for the Parkway Foundation in the six-year history of the running event. The $30,000 in net proceeds this year will go toward adding additional drinking fountains along the parkway.

Presentation of the check will take place at 7 a.m. Saturday during a SacFit member breakfast at the William B. Pond Recreation Area along the parkway.
