As we approach the weekend, and KSBB’s first Great South Bend Clean-up, we briefly wanted to touch on the importance of events like this. While the intended focus is to improve the general aesthetics of our community, specifically our beautiful parks, the systemic benefits are easily missed. By participating in the Great South Bend Clean-up and events like it, individual facets of health (physical, mental, social, and environmental) are improved as well. The activities involved encourage physical activity, social interaction, urban respite, and improve our natural resources. So get out, enjoy the outdoors, and rain or shine, we’ll be building community and improving health on Saturday.
The Great South Bend Clean-up is being held on Saturday, October 2nd, from 9:00am-11:30am, at Leeper Park, Howard Park, Rum Villiage/Bowman Creek, and Potawatomi Park. Contact us at KSBBinfo@gmail.com for more information on how you can participate!
