Fundraising for Akron Children’s Hospital

SUSTAINABILITY

The Akron Marathon commits to consider the social, economic and environmental impacts while putting on a world-class event. We seek to incorporate environmentally responsible practices through a process of planning, deliberate actions, measuring progress, and continuous improvement. These practices will help to reduce waste and energy consumption, encourage economic advancement and healthy living.

GREENING EFFORTS

Preserving the environment is incredibly important to allow future generations to enjoy our events. Through our environmental efforts, we sought to reduce our consumption of resources, reuse/donate unsused items, and recycle as often as possible.
