In November, biologist and ultramarathoner Keith Hanson will spend three days running 300 miles across South Carolina, following the course of some of the state's most iconic rivers to raise awareness about the need for improved conservation efforts. He'll be dropping by our Wade Avenue store tonight to host a social run and talk about the project.
"My goal is to use this personal endurance challenge to raise funds and bring awareness to the importance of rivers,” Keith says. “American Rivers is a great organization and I am thrilled to team up with them and bring awareness to the great work they do every day. Rivers are vital to our ecosystems and economies, and my hope is to shine a light on the fact that many rivers are in deep trouble right now. As a biologist and environmental scientist, I have spent years studying rivers and how they directly influence human health and prosperity. I believe this adventure has the opportunity to have a positive impact for rivers and the communities that rely on them.”
