JACKRABBIT EARTH DAY EVENTS 2018
4/22: PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT WHILE RUNNING WITH FRIENDS AT JACKRABBIT
What better way to take care of yourself, than to do it while also taking care of your planet? This Earth Day 2018, JackRabbit celebrates with a variety of fun social events, all free to join!
All over the country, JackRabbit stores will be leading events that clean up local communities while burning calories. Come join in on the action! Everybody is welcome.
Running Fit – Ann Arbor: Free fun run and trail cleanup volunteering. We’ll be meeting up at 12pm to do a group run/ explore the 22 acres of the Miller Nature Area near downtown Ann Arbor.
Running Fit – Traverse City (Downtown): On Sunday 4/22 we will do our 2nd annual Beach Clean Up right across the street from our store here in downtown TC. The City of TC will help us with promoting our clean up project. Our event will be promoted via social media and postings here in town. We have also reached out to local track and field teams and our local running clubs to come help us clean up the beach where most of them train. We have gloves and trash bags left over from our event last year so this clean up should not cost a dime. Last year we collected over 30 full bags of trash so we hope to collect even more this year!
