Celebrate Earth Day by running the Earth Day 5K at Shelby Farms Park!
Celebrate going green at the third annual Earth Day 5K on Sunday, April 19, 2015! After the race, runners are invited to participate in a tree planting at Shelby Farms Park or to take one of the saplings home to green up their community.
All proceeds from the Earth Day 5K benefit Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline. Each year, Shelby Farms Park Conservancy (SFPC) privately raises more than $2 million (more than 75 percent of its operating budget) to keep the Park + Greenline clean, green and safe, and the Earth Day 5K is just one of the many ways that you can help SFPC work toward this goal.
