Racing Toward Responsibility

Kudos to the entire Air Force Marathon team and several volunteers for helping pick up trash along the 1-mile stretch of Kauffman Avenue on September 2nd. We picked up almost 20 bags of trash from State Route 444 down to Wright State University!

The cleanup was centered around the recent adoption of Kauffman Ave that runs along the half marathon and marathon courses. We will organize cleanups every mid-spring, late summer, and fall if you’d like to join us in making the community clean.
