York County Team-Up To Clean UP Challenge

The “League” Announces 1st Annual Team-Up to Clean Up Challenge

When the world seems crazy, it’s time do something CRAZY good!

York County, ME. As of May 1, The League for Accelerating Youth has issued a challenge to all citizens, schools, and organizations of York County to participate in the First Annual Team-Up to Clean Up Challenge. The challenge is to make our home pristine by cleaning up 50 parks or playgrounds and 500 miles of roadsides throughout all of York County during the month of May.

“We are at a crucial time in the world when youth and adults alike must get back in touch with our inherent power to create the society we want” states the League’s organizer Bill Macomber, resident of Saco. “The purpose of the challenge is to gage our readiness as a community to take our present reality in our own hands and to propel our future in the right direction. Whether we reach the goal this year is not that important. What is important is that more people get involved and participate in life. A fundamental aspect of living is making the world the way we want it. So let us make it pristine!”

The League maintains the importance to our future of people experiencing how easy it can be to take one element of the world at a time and make it the way we want. With this realization the energy, effort, and work required to bring other elements of our life into alignment with our values will come more naturally.

The League is nearly finished constructing its website and Facebook page to help promote and track the Challenge to residents of York County. Through the use of these tools as well as texting, email, and yes – traditional phone calls, volunteers for the League will help people find roads and parks that haven’t already been claimed or cleaned. Though these same means progress can be tracked and successes shared with the community. For more information, to help with organizing the challenge, or to check in on progress, please email WeCleanUp500@gmail.com, call or text (207) 229-5354, or visit www.AccelerateYouth.org.
