From one Board member's goal to raise funds for YES by running up Mt. Diablo in 2016, the Run to Nature Fund-Racer has grown to include walkers, runners, joggers, and supporters from every part of the YES community. In 2017, 60 Fund-Racers of all ages and speeds participated in a 5K, 10K, and Half-Marathon put on by Brazen Racing right here in our local open space at the Richmond Marina, and with the support of more than 300 donors, YES quintupled the amount raised in 2016, with a grand total of $21,437!
We look forward to making this an annual event that keeps growing! Read on for more information from the 2017 Fund-Racer, and save the date for next year's event: February 24th, 2018! Email us or check back in late 2017 for details.
Run to Nature Fund-Racer 2017:
YES is gearing up for an exciting Run to Nature Fund-Racer! On February 25th, YES staff, board, youth participants, volunteers, and community members will walk or run the Brazen Victory 5K, 10K, or half-marathon course through the Richmond Marina right here in our own backyard.
This is our second annual Fund-Racer, and we are setting out to quadruple the funds raised for YES!
