BRUNSWICK, GA (May 16, 2023) – Combining exercise, fun and litter removal, PLOGGING is once again headed to the Golden Isles!
This FREE event begins and ends at Old City Hall (1229 Newcastle Street, downtown Brunswick) and welcomes all abilities of runners, walkers and joggers for an hour-long (or less if desired) trash pickup effort.
After the 4:00 PM registration and supply pickup, participants will collect litter while walking, jogging or running the Brunswick Wellness Walk, Run & Bike event route -- cleaning the way for that event the following weekend.
All litter collection supplies will be provided and participants will receive a logoed reusuable water bottle or grocery bag while supplies last.
Plogging, which merges the words “jogging” and the Swedish phrase for pick up “plocka upp,” began in 2016 as an organized activity in Sweden and has quickly spread world-wide with countries covering the globe joining in this community betterment fun.
“We are excited to partner with local organizations and the City of Brunswick to offer a Plogging opportunity in the downtown area,” said Lea King-Badyna, KGIB executive director. “Runners/joggers/walkers of all levels and ages are welcome to join us in this fun community betterment activity that will clean the Brunswick Wellness Walk, Run & Bike event scene route, prepping it for that upcoming community event.”
Organized by Keep Golden Isles Beautiful in partnership with Bike Walk Golden Isles, Environmental Community Action, Golden Isles Track Club, Brunswick Downtown Development Authority and the City of Brunswick.
