Earth Day: Plogging (And a Surprise Reward!)


You never know what you’re going to find when you’re plogging! If you haven’t heard of plogging, it is a combination of running, jogging and picking up garbage. In honor of Earth Day, Lakeville/Burnsville Moms on the Run chose to plog during their morning run — and they were literally rewarded with a surprise! Franchise Owner Kim Burggraaf found a $100 bill in the woods as her MOTR group was picking up garbage. They plan to donate to a local environmental group. What a fun full circle moment! 

Kim shared, “SO proud of this dedicated crew for showing up in the rain to go plogging this morning! Impressive for sure! We decided prizes needed to be involved, as anyone who shows up to pick up trash in the rain deserves a prize! Oh, and turns out it literally “pays off ” to go deep in the woods to collect trash…happened to find a $100 bill back there! Planning to donate it to an environmental charity.

We didn’t get it all, but we made a major dent in the trash around Crysral Lake Beach and Lac Lavon parks today. If you are looking for a rewarding activity for the family, plogging is a great option! The spring thaw has left a lot of items to be found and cleaned up. Thanks so much to our 10:30am crew for taking an hour out of your day to make an impact! You are amazing!”
