A Boston Finish for the Trees - 4/18/16
April 19, 2016
BENEFITING: NORTH CAROLINA URBAN FOREST COUNCIL
After lacing up and logging numerous early-morning training miles, I have decided to dedicate my participation in the 2016 Boston Marathon to raising money to plant trees. Trees are very near and dear to my heart and, as an employee of the North Carolina Urban Forest Council, a volunteer on the Wake Forest Urban Forest Advisory Board, and as an ISA certified arborist, I have the privilege of promoting the importance of trees in our neighborhoods every day. I am raising money for the NC Legacy Tree Fund, which provides financial assistance to communities across North Carolina for tree planting projects that help educate NC citizens about the importance of trees and the role they play in improving air quality, reducing energy costs, increasing real estate values, providing wildlife habitat, and creating opportunities for residents to relax and enjoy nature.
