We were proud to be a supporter of this great event.
“The fifth annual Shiver in the River on Saturday, February 23rd was a huge success! A lot of rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the crowds. When people are passionate about the environment, they come to clean up litter, run in the 5K, and jump in the river, even in less-than-ideal weather. Several hundred people of all ages picked up 869 pounds of litter from the area surrounding Tredegar, and 225 pounds of recyclables were picked up. It’s important to note that the nature trails on Belle Isle were not cleaned up because the ground was so saturated with water, and foot traffic could harm the paths and plantings.”
