There are just sixteen days until the 2017 Running with the Bears Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K, and we have a new Charity Runner leader! Congratulations Dawn, you are our top fundraiser (at the moment).  Our top team is currently Team Gulbransen.

Remember, in addition to all the other goodies, our top Individual and Team fundraisers will each receive a special gift at the Lu’au.

Dawn says, “I am once again participating in the charity event, “RUNNING WITH THE BEARS” This wonderful event helps raise funds for children and families involved in foster care in small Northern California towns.  All proceeds go towards aiding children and the families who are involved with Mountain Circle Family Services.  I am honored to be a Charity Runner for an amazing non-profit committed to making peoples lives enriched through partnerships built with love and kindness.”

Every single day, we (the staff, volunteers, and foster parents of Mountain Circle Family Services) ensure that nearly 100 children and youth are provided for in safe and loving foster (Resource) homes. Your fundraising provides special activities like the PowderQuest trip and every single dollar makes a difference.
