We're supporting: Run to Nature by YES Nature to Neighborhoods

Team Captain(s) : Joanna Pulido



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.

We're taking part in YES's "Fund-Racer" - participating in the Victory Race 5k/10k in the Richmond Marina while raising funds for the Camp-to-Community (C2C) teen program. Please support our team - every donations makes a big difference! And, let us know if you'd like to join in the fun.

YES's Camp-to-Community (C2C)
 youth development program forges strong values in 14-18 year old youth leaders that allows them to transition into successful young adults. C2C gives youth the opportunity to advance their leadership and foster essential 21st century workforce skills: communication, teamwork, social responsibility, critical thinking, self-management, creativity and innovation. For many teens, the best part of C2C is the close, trusting relationships that are formed at camp and on outdoor adventures. 

C2C youth visit regional, state, and national parks to participate in experiential outdoor hard skill and leadership day outings, as well as overnight backpacking and camping trips. They also have opportunities to attend multi-week summer camp leadership trainings, where they learn skills and gain the experience they need to be hired as camp counselors or work in outdoor-related fields.
