Volunteer at a C4 Zero Waste Event
Leadville Race Series volunteers are the key to making these events environmentally sustainable. Since 2012 at Leadville Race Series Events, we have kept more than 80% of all trash out of the landfill through recycling, composting and outreach efforts. That’s over 30,000 pounds of waste diverted every year, 70,000 pounds of carbon reduced from our earth’s atmosphere and many natural resources saved! Help educate participants on how to recycle and compost. You will be placed at an aid station or at the start/finish to cheer racers on while providing a valuable service.
Join us from 5-7pm on April 22nd for the annual Party for the Planet, a celebration of Leadville and Lake County’s efforts to be inspiring stewards of our environment. The Award Ceremony and Party will take place at Harperrose Studios, 601 Harrison Ave. The party will include live music (Groovespeak) and food. It is free for members, $5 for non-members; don’t worry, you can become a member at the door.
Don’t forget to shop for us! (But only for things you need, that are made well and will add value to your life.) The following businesses have pledged 15-20% of their Friday proceeds to the local environmental programs, so get out and support these local businesses on Earth Day: Cookies with Altitude, City On a Hill, Melanzana, Harperrose Studios, High Mountain Pies, Community Threads, Cycles of Life, and Leadville Outdoors.
