What is earthRUN?
A vehicle to bring people together to help "green" communities by promoting sustainable lifestyles, encouraging volunteerism and raising funds for local and environmental issues.

Why Kamloops?
We live in a beautiful, yet delicate and complicated dry grassland ecosystem.  200 participants, exhibitors and sponsors at earthRUN 2010 reinforced the need for this event.  "Organic", local events strongly influence environmentally-conscious behaviours.

Event waste?
We host this event under defined Green Planning Guidelines.  YES, we are different!  We recycle, compost, re-use, re-purpose, borrow, and in some cases "do without" resources to ensure our environmental footprint is as small as possible.

Environmental EXPO?
Yes, this is a great opportunity for local organizations and businesses to showcase new technologies and environmentally-friendly business practices.  Last year over 200 participants perused the EXPO.  We had great enthusiasm, information transfer, interests and awareness.

Local benefits?
Our local environmental beneficiary is the McQueen Lake Environmental Education Centre.  This facility is dedicated to providing environmental education to children, parents, teachers and the general public; definately a worthy local cause!

How can I get involved?
Opportunities exist for exhibitor sponsorship, donations and partnerships.  Participation in any way and in any amount would be greatly appreciated.  Create a team and fundraise for McQueen Lake Environmental Education Centre!
