CompRUNew: Race for Zero Waste is a family-friendly event held on World Clean-up Day to help tidy our local neighborhoods. We are inviting you to join us at Garfield Park in Grand Rapids, MI and run/walk a mapped route through the Madison area and parts of Oakdale to pick up litter near the sidewalks. Each runner will be equipped with gloves, a trash bag, and a recycle bag to collect waste along the route. Prizes will be awarded to runners that complete our Trash to Treasure Scavenger Hunt and a special gift will be awarded to the runner with the most unique trash find!
Our event is inspired by Plogging! (picking up litter + jogging) - A fun new international fitness craze for people who want to save the planet
World Clean-up Day was established in 2008 as a way for volunteers and partners worldwide to come together to rid our planet of trash - cleaning up mismanaged waste and other litter from our communities.
Proceeds from the CompRUNew: Race for Zero Waste will benefit Comprenew's electronics recycling efforts.
