Kayak Cleanups Continue in August!

We are pleased to announce that thanks to grant funding provided by the Spring Creek Environmental and Preservation Fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation and the 395 Express Lanes Community Grant Program, we have new boats and a 'kayak barn' stationed near the north end of Commonwealth Avenue in Alexandria!

The seven kayak clean-up events this summer have been a great success, with an average of 155 pounds of mostly plastic bottles removed each time from the Run. That's a half a ton in total!

Three new volunteer kayak clean-up opportunities are scheduled through August, with more to be added in the Fall. Please consider joining us. It's fun and rewarding.

REGISTRATION opens two to four weeks in advance for each event. Upcoming dates:

Saturday, August 10, 8-11AM
Sunday, August 18, 8-11AM
Sunday, August 25, 8-11AM


Look out for more events soon and we hope to see you out enjoying Four Mile Run!
