Orange County Rescue Mission Running Club

by

Our firm has had the privilege of partnering with the Orange County Rescue Mission to start a running club. We are working with the students (all residents at the Rescue Mission are students) at the Village of Hope to train them to run the Surf City USA half marathon on February 7, 2010.

This has been an awesome opportunity for us to be able to volunteer in an activity that I have enjoyed so much over the years and give back to people that could really benefit from completing a half marathon.

Although we started just 4 weeks ago, we can already see the benefits of this training. The students have seen tangible changes in their health fitness and we are encouraging them to keep it up. Now is the time when aches and pains start showing up and it is hard to get out of bed. We want to keep encouraging them to stay the course.
