The last eight years we have raised just over $95,000 for Children's Hospital of Orange Count to help fund their research and case studies. 100% of what we raise goes to CHOC. Our stretch goal for this year is to raise $20,000 for a total of $115,000 cumulative over the last nine years. Great friends, work colleagues, Yamaha Cares have all been such great supporters these last eight years. You can join us in S. California for the race on January 7, 2017 or donate through this Crowdrise site. If you join us in the race, please make sure to put KatrinaKures in the team name.
