The Rotary Club of University Place-Fircrest is hosting the 2023 “Clean-UP” – a walk and Earth Day clean-up event!
Celebrate Earth Day 2023 by joining us for Clean UP! It will be a beautiful walk through the city and neighborhoods of University Place. In Germany they have the “volksmarch,” or people’s walk, and in Sweden they have “plogging,” which is jogging while picking up trash. The first annual CLEAN-UP will give participants an inside view of this city by Puget Sound which is home to the Chambers Bay Golf Course while picking up trash to make a difference on Earth Day 2023!
The distances to be walked will vary but expect to walk the equivalent of a 3K or 5K. It will be fun for the whole family, and we plan to make it an annual tradition. Trash bags will be provided, but please bring any gloves or tools you need for trash pick-up.
T-Shirt – Order by April 5, 2023 to guarantee a shirt and size. All finishers will receive a medal to commemorate the event.
Early Bird Registration (by March 31, 2023): $25.00
Later Registrations: $35.00
