This past Sunday February 7, a group of 20 runners took part in the Kaiser Permanente 5K and Half Marathon. Not only were the runners out to enjoy the beautiful morning and get some exercise on superbowl Sunday, but they were also raisng money to support the SWB girls program in Buenos Aires, Argentina. All in all, the event raised $5,283, enough to run the program for most of 2010! Adrian K., who is currently a Junior in high-school and has worked as a volunteer at the refugee community soccer camp in Oakland, was the 13th female to cross the finish line in the 5K after taking the course by storm.
We want to extend a big thank you to all the runners and all the donors who are making this program possible. Please see the video below for more information about the program in Argentina, and we look forward to doing the run again next year!
