BENEFITING: Prairie Rivers Network
ORGANIZER: Prairie Rivers Network
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2018
Running a half marathon is physically hard. But walking that distance is mentally more challenging.
On April 28, I will walk the half marathon for Prairie Rivers Network as part of the Illinois Marathon race weekend. What will help me stay focused for 3+ hours? Thinking of those who support clean water will help me trudge through those 13.1 miles. The rivers and wildlife of Illinois need you. I need you!
Prairie Rivers Network (PRN) has been Illinois’ advocate for clean water and healthy rivers for fifty years. The Middle Fork of the Vermilion river is the state’s only Wild and Scenic river and is threatened by a Dynegy owned coal ash impoundment. PRN fights to protect rivers, wildlife, and communities across Illinois threatened by the dangers posed by coal ash and other pollution.
Join us in protecting clean water because if you don't, who will?
