Take a Walk on the Wild Side for YES

by Jean Hyams

Supporting: Run to Nature for YES Nature to Neighborhoods

My Team: Team Wild Richmond



Please join us in along the beautiful Bay Trail for this great run/walk race to raise funds for YES Nature to Neighborhoods! 

YES does life-saving, youth-empowering work in our community. Imagine an organization that connects young people and families from Richmond neighborhoods to nature. We're talking everything from kids joining the Richmond Rangers to explore the East Bay Regional Parks to teens heading out for three-week wilderness backpacking trips to multi-generational families finding respite and community at family camp in Sebastopol.  And, every step of the way, YES's amazing staff are there -- encouraging, enlightening, and empowering!  I know you want to be a part of supporting this incredible organization!

Please join us!! We are looking for more folks to walk and race with us. Unfortunately, I'm a little late getting this page up while my focus has been on being with my mom as she recovers from a fall. Even so, I'm committed to being part of this great event for YES and there's no time like the present to make it happen.  So, LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!

We would love to have you as part of our team!  You can walk or walk. 5K, 10K or the half-marathon. Or, DONATE NOW to be a virtual member of our team. Every donation makes a difference!!

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.
