WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Renfrew Institute’s Salamander Scramble 5K race, held in conjunction with the Waynesboro Summer Jubilee’s Firecracker 5K on July 4, fielded a team of 69 members who helped raise nearly $6,000 to support the institute’s educational programming.

The team wore new “eco-performance” shirts, sponsored by Tru Cut Lawn and Landscape LLC and an anonymous donor.

“Tru Cut’s lead sponsorship ensured that we could make an important decision — the purchase of eco-performance Team Salamander T-shirts for all scramble participants,” said Tracy Holliday, institute assistant director and event coordinator.

The shirts are made fiber-to-finish in the United States from 100 percent recycled materials — from yarn spun in North Carolina and fabric made in Tennessee.

The shirts were manufactured in Massachusetts, and created especially for the Salamander Scramble.

“We’re especially excited about our eco-performance race shirts and the opportunity to make a statement by choosing a sustainably produced product,” Holliday said.
