Pearl's Running for Richmond Youth & Families!

Supporting: Run to Nature for YES Nature to Neighborhoods


Campaign has ended.


Beloved friends and family,

As many of you know, I've had the privilege of being a part of the Development and Communications team at YES Nature to Neighborhoods in Richmond, CA since my return from Budapest. I can't say enough how much I love the work I do and the work of YES as a whole - every day I am moved by the dedication, commitment and intention I see from my colleagues and this community in providing equitable and sustainable access and education of the outdoors for youth and families. All of this is made possible in no small part from the generosity of the community, and this year I'm taking part in YES's 5K "Fund-Racer" - challenging myself to go the distance while raising funds for YES's programs. This will be my second 5K race ever, and I'm so excited that it is for a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Please support me - every donation makes a big difference!

With gratitude,


YES Nature to Neighborhoods is gearing up for our Run to Nature Fund-Racer on February 23rd! In either the 5K, 10K, or Half-Marathon heats, we'll be walking, running, and skipping the Richmond Marina's beautiful San Francisco Bay Trail. Learn more about us at www.yesfamilies.org. 

To be part of this community effort to support YES, you can:

1) Donate Now!

2) Join us as a "Fund-Racer" in three quick steps:
 i. Sign up for the race by clicking here, and be sure to join the YES Nature to Neighborhoods Team during your registration process!
 ii. Start your own Fund-Racer page: Click the link and in just a few minutes, you'll have a personalized fundraising page.
 iii. Email your friends, family, and coworkers: Tell them why you're doing this, and ask them to donate to support you! Tips to make this very easy can be found here. We've learned that a group email is the best way to get started, and that follow-up posts on social media are a great way to give updates and to remind your community what you're up to.

How would you like to support?
