On Saturday, June 29th the 10th Annual Cause We Can 5K Run / Walk was hosted! The mission of this race is to give military families the opportunity to give back to their local San Diego community. Families were invited to meet the military organizations that support them throughout the year and learn how they can help support them back, Cause We Can! This was a special event and was a private race for military families who live in Lincoln Military Housing. The racers were treated to the 5K Run / Walk race course, a swag bag full of donated items, a medal for completing the race, and breakfast after the race. Over 450 runners/walkers participated. The top runners all won tickets to Disneyland!
The causes include Operation Homefront, The USO San Diego, and the Challenged Athletes Foundation: Operation Rebound and each received a check for $612 thanks to our military families participating in our door prize drawing, and our two event sponsors Jana Harris Painting and Air Temperature Specialists.
