Summer Runs for a Cause are 5k family events. Proceeds from the events are donated to a local non profit organization and this year's Summer Runs benefit Kootenai Environmental Alliance (KEA). A 50 year-old environmental group whose mission is to conserve, protect and restore the environment, KEA particularly focuses on the health of Lake Coeur D'Alene. KEA is the Lake Coeur d'Alene WATERKEEPER and offers programs and information about what each of us can do to keep the lake swimmable, fishable and drinkable. See KEAlliance.org for information about all the programs and activities.
