Peacock Acres is a social change organization in Salinas, CA that supports foster youth! When a youth has been separated from their family, Peacock Acres provides a safe home, a case manager, an opportunity to find and maintain a job, and loving community of positive support for the kids in our program.
WE ARE SEEKING RUNNERS THAT ARE EAGER TO SUPPORT FOSTER YOUTH, and show off their Peacock spirit!
ANY RUNNER THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO RAISE $200 WILL RECIEVE A FREE PEACOCK DRY FIT T-SHIRT FROM US TO WEAR ON RACE DAY! These things are SWEET and STYLISH! Check out the pics to the left!
All runners who raise at least $500 for Peacock Acres are eligible to have their San Francisco Marathon registration fees reimbursed along with your t-shirt.
So in a nutshell...Its pretty easy:
Step 1: Register for the race on your own!
