Million Tree Challenge Partner, RCC Waterproofing, stepped up and generously sponsored 1,000 native trees seedlings for giveaway at the 2015 London Life Forest City Road Races this past weekend. The weather was lovely, people were excited as they registered for the races and lots of happy people gladly took home baby trees to plant in their yards and register them in London’s Million Tree Challenge.

For the past four years, native tree seedlings have been given out at the Forest City Road Races – a Partner in London’s Million Tree Challenge. Each year it has been popular with participants but costly for Reforest London until this year, for the first time, a sponsor was found to cover the cost of these baby trees.

RCC seedlingsRichard Grieg, Area Manager at RCC Waterproofing said, "We are proud to participate in such an important endeavour. As an all Canadian, family run business, we are always looking for local initiatives like this one to help give back to the community. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this"

RCC Waterproofing is London's oldest and largest waterproofing company with over 80 years of waterproofing London. They solve wet basements, damp basements, foundation cracks and other foundation problems.

RFL volunteer Sue ElliotThe Forest City Road Races are great supporters of the Million Tree Challenge – so much that they incorporated a tree into their finisher’s medal so participants can be reminded of not only the importance of trees but the fact that London is known as the Forest City. 

Steve Ryall, Race Director noted, “Continued at this year’s race and for future years, when people crossed the finish line, they received a finisher’s medal. Participants are collecting and building their very own ‘forest’ of medals.  It is our hope that these medals not only represent each participant’s accomplishment, but are also a reminder for them to do their part in participating in the Million Tree Challenge.”

Thank you RCC Waterproofing and the London Life Forest City Road Races for your great support of London’s Million Tree Challenge and getting more trees in the ground for a healthier, greener Forest City.
