Join Team FCYDems at KickButt Columbus!


KickButt Columbus is an annual spring highway ramp clean up event created to remove blighted conditions from our city’s exit and entry ramps after winter thaw and raise awareness about the hazards of cigarette butt litter to the environment.

Our team will meet at Wolfe Park (1911 E. Broad St.) at 9:00 AM. Our clean-up ramp is Team 20—I 70 Exit 95 Hague Ave and Fisher Rd!  We should be wrapped up and done by 2:00 PM.

KickButt Columbus T-shirts will be given to us at the start (they are free!). There will also be breakfast before we head out to our ramp and a pizza party when we we return!

Please dress for the weather since we will be outdoors. Close-toed shoes are a must!

Register here*

*Be sure to enter FCYDems on the team name and select Team 20 from the ramp sites.
