In the district of Ancón, “Plant a Tree, Plant a Life” continues to thank the 3,000 people who participated in Lima’s half-marathon and 10k races.
Lima’s “Plant a Tree, Plant a Life” program seeks to make the Lima population more conscious about the health of their environment and communities. What better way than to support a new planting campaign with a half-marathon and 10k?
Thanks to all those who ran in these 2016 events sponsored by Toyota, Claro, and Nike, another 500 trees have been planted in Ancón, one of Lima’s northernmost districts, as part of the “Plant a Tree, Plant a Life” initiative.
More than 300 people will participate in further plantings along Ancón’s coast while also participating in physical education activities and programs provided by the Municipality of Lima.
