Venice Envirorace combines fitness and charity
VENICE, Fla. (WWSB) - Three hundred and fifty runners came out to embrace the morning sun in Venice for the “zero waste” 5K Envirorace Sunday. Participants ran or walked along scenic downtown Venice, through a tree-lined road and toward the beach.
The race is about staying fit, but so is any 5K. What makes this one different is the organizer’s dedication to staying “green”. The race using earth-friendly products and limiting waste.
Participants came together to celebrate afterward at an afterparty in the park, complete with live music and a zero-waste beer garden--using refillable cups.
Envirorace organizers plan to donate $2,500 of the event’s proceeds to the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast.
