The Florida Keys Wildlife Society

The Friends Group for the National Wildlife Refuges of the Florida Keys (FAVOR)  

We are delighted to again be part of this race!  Saturday, April 20th, 2019 at McCoy Indigenous Park - White Street and Atlantic in Key West.
FAVOR has a passion for Trash - getting rid of it that is! Every year FKWS/FAVOR volunteers remove mountains of trash from our National Wildlife Refuges and surrounding areas. Sponsored by Key West's Marci Rose, who is passionate about the environment, all proceeds go to FAVOR/Florida Keys Wildlife Society to help in these efforts.  It's a great race, starting at Atlantic and White Streets in Key West - by the Key West Wildlife Center - (plenty of free parking) - running along Atlantic Blvd, right beside the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. It's always a beautiful day in Key West and what a great way to start the day - and celebrate Earth Day - be healthy and contribute to a great cause and our environment!
Immediately following the race,  while waiting for the official results, the group gathered for a raffle of some fun and exciting prizes and shared an earth friendly tip -and then the awards were presented which include a certificate and an earth friendly bio degradable prize - the best chocolate cookies on the planet!! you can see the official results on the Southernmost Runners club website.

Planning is already underway for next year - you can help make it a great success:
