joe says "run ur5k"

Calling all Portland runners: Joe wants to let you know that this Saturday, April 21st, is the Urban Runoff 5k, when runners and walkers will hit the streets and trails of Portland to raise awareness of water pollution and raise money to support clean water education in greater Portland and Saco areas.

The date of the Urban Runoff was chosen to coincide with Earth Day and Spring's "first flush", when rain and melted snow wash pollution into our waterways.

The race is followed by the City of Portland's Green Neighbor Family Fest, where families and community members enjoy hands-on activities about water, live entertainment, and have an all-around good time!

Joe hopes the day is a great success and urges you to learn more here.
