Run a 5k on your own time and Support the Santa Cruz Boys and Girls Club!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

All proceeds matched by SCMBAS and donated to Boys and Girls Club!


The Boys and Girls Club is currently helping families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic and we will donate all the proceeds from the 5k. In addition, SCMBAS will match the earnings from the event, up to $200, to boost the donation to the Club! Please, join us for this socially-distanced 5k!

How do I join?

  1. Register for the race on eventbrite and puchase a $30 ticket for the race by choosing “Other AFS Chapter”, then when you sign up, be sure to enter Santa Cruz-Monterey Bay Area Subunit when it asks for the subunit. $15 from your ticket will go to SCMBAS, which will then be matched (making it $30!) and donated to the Santa Cruz Boys and Girls Club.
  2. Download Strava on your phone and join the SCMBAS running team. We are under the team name “California Sheepheads” for the 5k event.
  3. Go for a run! Record your 5k on Strava before June 14, 2020!

In addition to an opportunity to donate to a worthy cause, this 5k also includes prizes! There will be contests for the fastest time, highest mileage, slowest time, and the best running location. So, get out there and enjoy the sunshine!
