We will update the RUNKA.com blog on Monday, March 28th with news from the event. RUNKA would also like to thank all of the volunteers, Sponsors and IGIHOF Board Members for their efforts in this inaugural Induction Ceremony. The following is a statement from Sam Geil, Chairman of the Hall of Fame.
Over the past century, our planet has experienced more pollution and human-inflicted damage than any time in history. Conversely, man has also recognized the need to begin the repair, healing, and conservation required to sustain our fragile eco-system. There is evidence worldwide that countries, cities, governments, and world organizations are beginning to have a positive impact on the eco-system through the efforts of individuals, corporations, and governments.
It is the mission of the International Green Industry Hall of Fame to recognize those pioneers, leaders, and visionaries who have contributed to the Green movement. Additionally, we are committed to preserving the rich history of these great people and organizations by constructing a Green Hall of Fame to house the stories and share the old and the new technologies for future generations. After visiting our website, we hope that you will consider becoming a sponsor or a member. Thanks again for your interest and support… GO GREEN!
Sam Geil, Chairman of the Board
