Supporting – Washington Conservation Action
Mission: To develop, advocate, and defend policies that ensure environmental progress and justice by centering and amplifying the voices of the most impacted communities.
We fight for clean air, clean water, healthy forests, democracy and voting rights, and environmental justice. We work to lift up voices too long ignored: those of Native Nations and of communities that bear the
brunt of toxic pollution and climate chaos. Our non-partisan teams collaborate with local groups across Washington to promote civic engagement and to ensure that everyone has access to the ballot. We seek out and support solutions that nurture healthy communities, healthy economies, and healthy ecosystems.
Washington Conservation Action Education Fund began as Washington Environmental
Council nearly 55 years ago. We have convened environmental groups and allies
across the state to leverage the strength of all. Over the years, we have developed
and advanced many of the laws and institutions that make Washington a national
Up For Air Series is a collection of endurance events created to amplify informed dialogue and empower organizations actively working on air quality solutions. Proceeds from Up For Air events are directed at carefully selected non-profit groups who demonstrate high value influence strategies. The race platform is used to expose participants and the general public to science-based material about the importance of healthy air. All events are conducted with a minimal footprint philosophy.

In order to enable our event to become carbon neutral, we will have the More Running! Less Footprint! sustainability center where you can drop off your old used running shoes for recycling, nutritional package recycling through the GU Terracycle program, and recycle paper, aluminum and plastics.
