Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Instructor, YMCA of Indianapolis
What neighborhood do you live in?
How long have you supported Keep Indianapolis Beautiful?
I adopted my block about 7 years ago. I’ve participated in numerous Great Indy Clean-ups.
Why do you support KIB?
I’ve always felt strongly about litter and I was so happy to discover that KIB would help me with supplies to pick up my neighborhood. My block has always scored high enough for flowers, which I offer to my neighbors. I’ve met a lot of great neighbors handing them out! I usually use that opportunity to tell them about events or clean-ups coming up too. It also encompasses another passion of mine… fitness! I love that I can get a little daily exercise while walking the neighborhood.
What else are you involved in within the community?
I am the Vice President of Emerson Heights Community Organization.
Why would you encourage others to support KIB?
Between the Adopt-A-Block program, the Great Indy Cleanup, the graffiti abatement and the tree plantings KIB helps beautify in so many ways. KIB really makes it easy and rewarding too!!
