Today was the first community service event for Remote Year 3!
Shortly after we arrived in Argentina, we assembled a positive impact committee to organize events in each city. Travis and Arestia masterfully spearheaded a Park Clean Up Day, which was a huge success. Parque Sarmiento is the largest public park in Córdoba, and my favorite running location. It gets a lot of use by the locals every day, and there are many events there on the weekends.
We were divided into teams of 4. Heather, Johnson, Kelly and myself tied for 1st place with 8 total bags! I spent a good amount of time combing the shore of the lake, which was so gross. I won’t even get into the stuff I came across, but let’s just say, it needed to be done.
Together, we picked up 61 large trash bags full of nasty junk! We made a big difference. I hope future Remote Year groups will carry on this tradition and keep Parque Sarmiento clean!
