Watch for us in the Bluffton News Banner

A big thank you to Jessica from the News Banner for meeting with us this chilly morning.  We talked briefly about the race. Pam Vanderkolk from the Parks Dept was also able to give us all an idea of the cost to fully repair the River Greenway. Look for us in Monday's paper!

As a reminder we are still looking for business sponsors and donors as well as people to walk and run in the event.  Contact us at for more information!

Gallop for the Greenway!

Tri Kappa is excited to announce that we will be partnering with the Bluffton Parks Dept to raise funds to help cover the costs to repair the damage done to the River Greenway this winter. As some of you may know the snow, flooding, and ice has caused a large amount of damage to the Greenway including destruction of fencing, mile markers, benches, trees, and more. Let's pull together to make our Greenway as beautiful as it was before!

In order to make this a success we need your help!  We invite everyone to come run OR walk with us on Saturday, May 17th!  Donations will also be accepted. Be sure to register early (before May 10th!) in order to guarantee a tee shirt to prove you Galloped for the Greenway!

We are also currently looking for businesses to donate/sponsor our race. All levels of donations are welcome. Contact us at for more information on how you can help. All donors will have their business name on the tee shirts as well as other benefits.
