Green park (El Dorado Park), green race (Running Out of Time 5k), green expo (Long Beach Green Businesses), and everyone’s favorite green ($500) to the winners of the 5K race!
Long Beach Green Business Association presents the first annual 5k race to benefit Green Youth Programs. There will be 3 races; 5K, Kids Run, and Fun Run. All things green welcome at the fun run. (There will be prizes for the most original green costumes) Starting at 8:00 a.m. Sunday August 30.
Proceeds from the race will fund the summer Green Teen Biz Camp and year round Green K-12 programs.
At the end of the race be sure to visit the Green Expo. The expo will showcase more than 20 green businesses from the Long Beach area. Eco-minded businesses already confirmed include restaurants powered by solar energy, furniture made of eco-friendly materials, and all natural organic toys and clothing for baby.
There will also be live entertainment and stuff for the kids to do — facepainting and green crafts using recycled materials.
There are still some sponsorship opportunities and a few exhibitors spaces available. Sign up to run at active.com. Want to volunteer to help with the race and expo? Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org the more the merrier!
