The fundraising piece will focus on our Appalachian Offsets program, a local carbon offsetting opportunity that allows community members’ offsets to go toward renewable energy projects on Buncombe County schools or other nonprofit organizations. The next Appalachian Offsets project is installing a PV system on the downtown Asheville United Way building.
Early registration includes a t-shirt, goody bag, and bib with timing services. The top 3 male and female runners will receive prizes, including a medal and a local tree donated by Asheville Greenworks!
