Run For It
Saturday, September 28, 11am
Held in the scenic mountain town of Davis during the Leaf Peepers Festival, Run For It is a 2k (1.2M) walk and USATF – certified 5k (3.2m) run that raises funds and awareness for local community agencies, educational activities, and charities.
Appalachian Expeditions is participating in the run to raise money that will be used to take Tucker County youth on backpacking, biking, and boating trips, where they’ll learn new skills, hang out with kids from their community, and have fun! We hope to inspire in them a love and appreciation of this wild place we live in that will last a lifetime!
Saturday, September 28, 4-8pm
Libbey and Alex’s House
(262 8th St, Davis, WV 26260)
After the Run For It race, please join us at our home for an end of season celebration where we’ll share the successes of the summer’s programs and let you in on our plans to incorporate sustainable living skills and permaculture design into our APEX programs! Because sustainable living starts at home, we’ll be serving dishes made with our fresh, homegrown veggies, and ask that you please bring a dish to share from your garden, CSA, or other local food source as well.
