We had an awesome time on December 10th at the "Make Room for Santa" race in Irvine!! Our students looked great in their new "RunStrong" t-shirts and "reindeer antlers" (thanks Edie!). Over 50 students participated in the 5k and 10k races. It was so exciting to see our students and coaches from Santa Ana competing against youth running clubs from all over Orange County. Congratulations to RunStrong McFadden and the five students that placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for their age groups! Thanks to all of our Board members and the many volunteers who joined us to help with the race and provide security for the gift bags from Whole Foods!

"Thank you for helping me to follow my dreams of running with the Foundation. The Foundation is helping new athletes emerge and maybe you will not only see them run in races, but in the Olympics". - Kenia DelaCruz, Carr Intermediate School
