As a result of regional mandates to shelter in place, all community events have been canceled. Our friends at the City of Palo Alto had to cancel their annual Earth Day Celebration and Great Race For Saving Water, of which we were founding partners back in 2013.
Weve had to be quick on our toes and adapt to the rapidly changing situation. Despite our immense sadness that Team Tuolumne will not be able to physically run in this annual 5k to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and raise awareness about the Tuolumne, we wanted to let you know that our virtual fund-racer will continue as planned.
Our work to protect and restore the Tuolumne is being affected by COVID-19. As the market heads into a likely recession, small non-profits are losing funding rapidly. We must continue to fight for our most vulnerable populations and for the health of our planet. This situation is teaching us how to slow down and protect each other. Lets also take this chance to lean into our collective power and get through this together!
Gather your friends, start a team, and fund-race from your own home! This is our chance to keep each other inspired and involved during uncertain times.
