Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is looking for able-bodied volunteers to participate in this year’s Great American Cleanup.
The cleanup will run from March 1 though May 31.
Last year, more than 159,000 volunteers collected 7 million pounds of trash from 13,140 miles of roads, trails and shorelines, reported the Department of Transportation.
“Cleanup events like this have been a great success in improving the quality of life for Pennsylvanians by creating cleaner roadsides and communities,” said Transportation Secretary Barry Schoch, in a news release. “Many dedicated residents return year after year to show their support, and I encourage more Pennsylvanians to show pride in our state through these great opportunities.”
Gloves and tools will be provided.
Interested volunteers should go to www.gacofpa.org.
Eat, Run, Donate
What is this unique race, you ask? Well, runners jog 2 miles in Presque Isle State Park, eat 6 pepperoni balls and then run (or waddle) back to where they started.
Warning: This race is only for the gastronomically brave.
Register before May 9 for $30. From May 10 to 31, registration is $35. It is $40 from June 1 to 13.
The Jog ‘n Hog supports the Community Blood Bank.
