January 28, 2017

Historic Tredegar, Richmond

Thank you to all that participated in the 2016 Shiver in the River! We made a huge impact on our community with the 400 people who participated in the Community Cleanup, the 350 that registered for the inaugural 5K, and the 200 who jumped into the icy-cold James River! Looking forward to a bigger and better Shiver in the River in 2017! With beverages, food, music and more, this is the Coolest Winter Festival in Richmond, and shows our love for Virginia!

Shiver in the River is a fundraising event for Keep Virginia Beautiful in an effort to increase programs that support litter prevention, community outreach, education, recycling and beautification for Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia. To learn more about KVB, click the logo to the right.
