Race Information

Help support healthy waterways in the community! Held in partnership with Concord Township, this event is a fundraiser to help raise money to restore and preserve the watershed in the park. Funds raised will go toward the purchase of equipment to conduct snapshot surveys of Chester Creek, enabling NGM to test multiple locations along the creek simultaneously. The Chester creek is listed as impaired by the Pennsylvania DEP, and this snapshot study is an important first step in identifying what the issues are (identification of pollutants, for example) so a plan can be created to address them on a county-wide level. When water quality is low, it has a detrimental impact on human health.
