We live, work, and play in the Rouge River watershed. It's the most urbanized watershed in our state, home to more than 1.35 million people in Detroit, Southfield, Novi, and other surrounding communities. It also faces significant pollution because of all the paved surfaces and activity in the area.
As part of the Detroit Half Marathon I'm running in support of an organization that promotes restoration and awareness of the Rouge River watershed: Friends of the Rouge.
Reinvesting in our environment helps. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
