From the Mineral County Miner:
The Second Annual High Country Hustle, a 6.6K Run/Walk for Water, will be held on April 17 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Creede. The 2011 High Country Hustle is an opportunity for the community and state to come together to raise awareness about water issues and raise funds for river restoration activities on the Rio Grande.
There is a $25 event fee, which will include an event t-shirt, a gift bag and post-run/walk refreshments. All monies raised will go toward the event organizers’ goal of raising $10,000 and will be donated to the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project. The Mission of the Rio Grande Headwaters Restoration Project is “to restore and conserve the historical functions and vitality of the Rio Grande in Colorado for improved water quality, agricultural water use, riparian health, wildlife and aquatic species habitat, recreation and community safety while meeting the requirements of the Rio Grande Compact.”
