Cleveland Plogs WaterBOO!
Join Cleveland Plogs for our last and spookiest plogging of the year!
On Wednesday October 30th, ploggers will meet outside Waterloo Arts at the Waterloo Arts Tower (15600 Waterloo Rd) at 6pm. Ploggers will clean Waterloo Rd. and surrounding streets before wrapping up around 7pm.
After that, we'll wrap up and hit up one of the local watering holes of Waterloo and enjoy some pizza and spooky beverages.
Best part of all, come plogging dressed in your most frightening or fanciful costume! We'll award a prize at the end of the night to the best plogging costume - people's choice award!
Remember, you don't have to run marathons to go plogging! This will be slow paced run - just under 2 miles - with plenty of stops along the way - to pick up trash!
Please wear clothing and costumes you don't mind getting sweaty and a little dirty and please wear closed toed shoes - preferably shoes you don't mind running in! Water and light refreshments will be provided before we head out.
All ploggers will also receive a coupon to Chili Peppers Fresh Mexican Grill - good for 1/2 off your purchase of a meal item and drink - talk about a sweet deal!
Still don't know what the heck 'plogging' is all about?
Plogging is a fitness trend that originated in Sweden and is slowly spreading throughout the world. The term Plogging is derived from the Swedish phrase “plocka upp,” which translates to pick up. Plogging involves a combination of jogging and picking up trash along your running route using a plastic bag to collect the litter you find along your route. Plogging is great exercise and a great opportunity to make a positive impact on our environment and our neighborhood.
