The Race Across Nebraska is working with the Arbor Day Foundation, a charity which was founded and operates in Nebraska, to offset all our carbon emissions for the entire event. We are doing this by purchasing trees to be planted in the farms, ranches, and communities that fall along our race route.
The Race Across Nebraska leadership is kicking off this effort with the guaranteed purchase of 200 seedlings for planting in the state of Nebraska. These are enough trees to offset the output of the International Running Company pickup truck for the entire year! A portion of any net profits from the race will also go to this charity.
We are then asking each of our participants to follow our lead, and donate an amount of trees equal to their carbon footprint- 10 trees for individuals and 50 trees for teams.
If you live along the Nebraska race route and would be willing to plant and care for some of the trees we are donating, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Name, Address, and Phone Number.
