On April 22, 2017 the inaugural Earth Day on English Avenue event took place – featuring a two-day Community Clean Up (April 21st & 22nd as presented by our partner- Friends of English Avenue) and the Earth Day 5K and 1K Kid’s Fun Run (Saturday morning the 22nd as presented by Captain Planet Foundation).

This event generated valuable funding to develop a year-round teen workers program facilitated by Friends of English Avenue in order to focus on continued community clean-up efforts; while also supporting the programs of Captain Planet Foundation.
