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.
Health disparities, socio-economic/cultural inequities, and an absence of residents in leadership spaces are challenges faced by the Richmond community. Grounded in grassroots peer leadership and advocacy practices, YES's Adult Leadership Pathway meets those structural challenges by creating safe spaces in the community where Richmond adult leaders develop the skills to:
- Improve community conditions
- Motivate change in their neighborhoods
- Lead healthy connected lives
YES accomplishes this work by offering leadership development workshops, community building, trainings, and one-on-one support for the Richmond community. In the spirit of celebrating the launching of this program, YES's Adult Leader Coordinator Angelica Delgado will be participating in a 5k/10k "Fund Racer" alongside YES Adult Leaders to raise funds for YES's Adult Leadership Pathway.
We hope you'll support out team - every donation makes a big difference! We believe that all people are capable, powerful leaders.
The Adult Leadership Pathway Team
