Title: 4 Peaks Pickup in Tread Lightly! magazine
Post by: AZ-Ted on July 15, 2010, 11:47:43 PM
On page 6 of the Summer 2010 edition of Tread Lightly!'s Trails newsletter:

"Four Peaks Cleanup: Tread Trainers Tim Huber and Danica Moore once again organized the Four Peaks clean-up held on February 6, 2010 north of Phoenix. In this their third year, 500 volunteers picked up 25 tons of trash in six hours. After all the day's expenses were covered they sent a donation to Tread Lightly! for $637."

Bada$$. This thing just keeps getting bigger & better each year. I'm glad AZXC has been a part of it since inception.  8) Always a good feeling when you fill up a bag with trash some jacka$$ left out in OUR playgrounds.

For the number of organizations involved each year, a $637 donation seems kinda weak. Just my .02. Clean-ups and volunteering are great & do wonders for the area, but when it comes down to it - money makes things happen.

That is flipping cool the it is part of there newsletter.

For the next clean-up I will be working with my HOA presidnet to broadcast the info throughout our community, via e-mail and flyers. I will also be hanging the flyer again here at work.
