BENEFITING: WE RUN ORANGE COUNTY'S KIDS
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Launched in 2009, We Run Orange County’s Kids (WeROCK) is a non-profit, community service, public charity with a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, which designs and delivers an educational, after-school, intervention program for Middle and High School students in the Orange County area.
The WeROCK program leverages the endurance sport of running to improve the mental and physical health and wellbeing of our community’s children, and specifically focuses on instructing our student runners in the proper training for, and completion of, the 26.2 mile Orange County Marathon.
The emphasis of WeROCK's training is placed not on how fast or how far a student can run, but rather on how to set a formidable goal, create a plan of attack, and follow through with the necessary steps to accomplish that task.
We thank the Orange County Marathon for its continued support of WeROCK and the the youth our programs serves.
