Dig-In Earth Day 5k
With the help of local sponsors and volunteers, The Green Foundation upholds its mission to preserve and publicize the natural beauty of Newport News with the Dig-In Earth Day 5K race. Families, competitive runners, and escaped zoo animals embark on the chip-timed 5K contest and the lighter, 1-mile fun run from the City Center fountain. A post-race party boasts a DJ set, raffles, and prize giveaways.
Sponsors in addition to The Green Foundation include I Am Fitness, an organization that seeks to cultivate health and inspire adventure among Newport News residents through a variety of athletic events.
