CHARLESTON, S.C. – As he prepares for his 300-mile run across South Carolina next month on Nov. 2-5, Running for Rivers creator Keith “Wildman” Hanson has reached an agreement with Resource Environmental Solutions (RES) – the largest, most experienced ecological offset provider in the United States – to become the new title sponsor of Running for Rivers.
“I could not be more excited to team up with RES for Running for Rivers,” Hanson said. “RES’s commitment to making the world we live in a better place aligns seamlessly with what I hope to accomplish with Running for Rivers. RES’s tireless work has helped restore thousands of acres of wetlands, streams, and habitats. RES has even planted millions of trees as part of their commitment to environmental stewardship. They have fantastic leadership and I am thrilled to welcome them to the Running for Rivers family!”
As part of the agreement, RES has pledged a substantial donation to the beneficiary of this fundraising endurance adventure – the national non-profit river conservation organization, American Rivers. In all, over $10,000 has been raised for American Rivers through Running for Rivers.
“We are excited to partner with Keith and his passion for bringing awareness to the importance of our waterways,” said RES CEO and President, Elliott Bouillion. “From the headwaters to the mouth, rivers are critical natural infrastructures enhancing both recreation and economic development. At RES we are dedicated to protecting our waters and providing solutions to maintain and enhance these ecosystems. We’re thrilled to support Keith as he runs for Rivers.”

Hanson will run alongside some of South Carolina’s most beautiful and iconic rivers throughout his journey, which will begin in the Upstate of South Carolina near the Saluda River and end near the Stono River on Folly Beach. His course will take him through the Greenville, Columbia and Charleston metropolitan areas. Hanson’s goal is to complete this 300-mile journey in 72 hours or less. This run will represent the fastest known time for the upstate-to-coastal crossing of South Carolina. Hanson is currently raising money for American Rivers through CrowdRise.
