who is 5k in the east bay?
5K In the East Bay is an organization dedicated to making a difference in cancer research and other non-profit organizations. We host 5k runs to raise money for organizations that are dedicated to giving back to our communities.
We established ourselves in December 2012. The two of us were raising money for a Team In Training event, and said to ourselves "Hey, we really enjoy doing this. Fundraising to help people, what if we start hosting 5K's to give back? We can give back to all kinds of community groups who are dedicated to making a difference.", that is all it took. We hit the ground running, and we just finished hosting our first event on March 3, 2013. We met so many nice people, and heard some of their stories, and we now know for sure that all the hard work is more than worth it.
Currently we are working on hosting 5k runs to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). In the near future though, we would like to focus on research programs and community outreach groups that help with:
HIV/AIDS Support Services/Research
We are building a calendar for the year, and plan on hosting 3-4 5K's per year. If you have any suggestions for charities or programs that may need our help, please contact us.
We appreciate you stopping by and checking us out, and hope to see you at one of our events soon!
