PLEASE NOTE: The Clean Air Run  is a Zero Waste Event! Our goal is to send ZERO pounds of trash to the landfill. Help us by not bringing in any trash and by bringing your reusable water bottle with you and a canvas bag for any materials you pick up. We will not be providing single use disposable items, like utensils, plates, and water bottles. We will have water stations, recycling, and composting services at the event.

As we are promoting active and public transport (walking, running, biking, city bus, etc.) we are offering reduced priced tickets for those of you who are using active or public transportation to travel to/from the race. For those of you driving to the race (non-active transport), there is a $2 fee for ticket purchases.

The multi-talented actor/writer/director/producer and eyewear designer wanted to work with LISC to support small businesses battered by the pandemic. In this video, he explains why.

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.
