BENEFITING: Project Independence
ORGANIZER: Project Independence
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Team IndependAnce is made up of a small group of high school students from Early College High School in Costa Mesa. They chose Project Independence as the non-profit charity that they wanted to work with for their school project. Here's a little about Project Independence and their partnership with the OC Marathon:
Project Independence is excited to partner with the Orange County Marathon for the 3rd year in a row! Our second biggest fundraiser of the year; this event also helps us increase awareness of our services within the community. For over 35 years we have provided comprehensive services to people with disabilities in their homes, at work, and in the community.
The OC Marathon also ties into and promotes the goals of our Healthy Living Program. The funds raised from this event make it possible for us to continue to provide and even expand upon all of our services, including this vital program. We know that making healthy choices regarding food and exercise is challenging for not only people with disabilities, but for all of us. Since health impacts every area of our clients lives, it is crucially important that we offer services and incentives that help them make strong and bold choices for their own health.
You can support these students with their fundraising project AND the mission of Project Independence by giving a gift today!
