For the ninth consecutive year, the College of Charleston Masters of Environmental Studies Student Association (MESSA) will host the 8K for H20, an 8K run scheduled for February 19, 2011 at 9:00a.m, in front of the Folly Fishing Pier on Center Street. Working to raise awareness and funds to help improve the quality of our local waterways, more than 300 runners and walkers are expected to participate in this year’s race, whose course runs through the streets of Folly Beach. This year, local water-watchdog organization, Charleston Waterkeeper, will be the race beneficiary, further highlighting the importance of the public’s involvement in the fight to protect our waterways.  Registration and additional donations will be available online via or at the registration table the day of the race.  (Registration is $20 before 2/1 and $25 after 2/1…)

Help us spread the word about the race!  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone out there!

After a recent visit to San Francisco, one of our great friends and dedicated supporters sent us this photo.  It seems as though the Charleston Waterkeeper logo is slowly making its way around the globe.  Let’s just hope our friends at San Francisco Baykeeper don’t think we’re trying to tread on their turf!

Have photos of our logo popping up in spots other than Charleston?  Shoot ’em our way, and we’ll share them with the world.

The organizers of the Dock Side Fashion Show have chosen Charleston Waterkeeper to be the benefiting charity of their annual event!  We’re incredibly humbled and very appreciative of their choosing us!  What better place to host a fashion show than on the edge of Charleston Harbor?!

The event will take place on October 9, 2010.  For more details (including participating artists, etc.), go on over to the write-up on TheDigitel.

Again, a big thanks to all those involved with the planning of the Dock Side Fashion Show!
