RiverSweep - Saturday, May 10, 2014

May 02, 2014 at 11:33 AM

RiverSweep 2014 -- celebrating 25 years of beautifying the Cuyahoga River Valley -- is scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. - Noon.

You are invited to join with your fellow WRRA rowers and friends of WRRA at Sainato's on Columbus Road, where we'll coordinate and then branch out to spend the morning removing trash from the areas bordering the Cuyahoga River on the Columbus Road Peninsula that is home to our boathouse.

This event of the Canalway Partners targets the areas along the Cuyahoga, the Ohio and Erie Canalway and the Towpath Trail. Nearly 1000 volunteers have participated in this effort in years past, collecting 10-12 tons of trash each year.

After the cleanup a celebratory free luncheon will be held from Noon until 2:00 p.m. at the Cleveland Rowing Foundation boathouse.

But wait, that's not all! The first 1,000 volunteers also get an awesome T-shirt designed by George Coghill starring the well-known RiverSweep frog.

Let us know you plan to come so we can obtain the proper number of t-shirts and supplies (gloves and garbage bags). E-mail us at

This is a fun, feel-good, make-a-difference charity activity of WRRA. Join us!
