Keep McAllen Beautiful celebrate its 10th anniversary of the Arbor Day Celebration March 6. The event’s 5K and 10K runs, and 25-mile and 100-kilometer bike tours will be virtual this year. Participants can set their own date, place and time to get the miles in and enjoy the Rio Grande Valley spring weather.
“Arbor Day is a day when we celebrate nature’s gift of trees, the tall providers of shade, fruit, fun and habitat for many different kinds of wildlife,” said Chris Lash, program coordinator for KMB.
Those registering by Feb. 14 will receive a t-shirt, bib, neck gaiter and 10-year anniversary medal. All events are $25. Revenue from the event will help KMB raise funds for tree plantings and tree give-aways.
Packet pickup will be March 4 at the Keep McAllen Beautiful office. On that day, participants will pick up their event packet and a free tree.
