Highway Cleanup is our annual fundraiser that helps pay for stamps, letter writing supplies, and fund events throughout the year. Join us to help Amnesty Lethbridge clean up Alberta Highways and support our group in sending hundreds of letters around the world every year!

Meet at 9AM at Elizabeth Hall Wetlands parking lot - located on Bridge Drive West near the Bridge View Golf Course. Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather, a hat, and sturdy shoes (NO open-toed shoes). We provide refreshments (granola bars, fruit, water), gloves, safety vests, and garbage bags.

Afterwards we celebrate our major fundraiser by going for pizza and refreshments!

 
 

Project Outcomes:

 

1.

Every year our group removes over 80+ bags of garbage from Highway #3 along a 3km stretch from University Drive to the 5th Ave North turn-off!

 

2.

In return for our volunteer efforts our group raises a good chunk of money to support our annual letter writing activities!

Highway Cleanup is a fantastic team-building activity for our group. What better way to get to know your fellow human rights defenders than by spending a couple hours walking and talking!
