On Aug. 3, nearly 50 AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach employees and family members removed roadside trash along the 4.2-mile North/South Causeway Loop.

“We had a great morning together and I’m so proud of the team who came out to help clean up our community,” said Marlene Thomas, event organizer and AdventHealth New Smyrna Beach Foundation director. “It takes a village and we have an amazing village of friends.”

All in all, the group picked up nearly 250 pounds of trash along the popular run, bike and skate loop in New Smyrna Beach.
