July/August

This summer has been a hot and busy one here at Running with Love.  From preparing for our 2nd Annual Dinner and Auction to delivering school supplies we have had a blast! We would like to thank everyone who generously donated school supplies and Boys Team Charity and National Charity League for helping us get organized for our delivery on July 30th! The kids were ecstatic picking out their backpacks, folders, markers, and the rest of their supplies! On this day we also had the joy of giving out 7 scholarships to those at the camp attending college!

Tickets sales are now live for our 2nd Annual Dinner and Auction, which will be on October 15th at Diablo Country Club.  We hope to see you all there!

We appreciate the continued love and support!

The 2016-2017 school year is off to a great start!  The NCL Vista Oak chapter was once again very generous with their donation of school supplies as well as Boys Team Charity with their contributions of backpacks! NCL and Boys Team Charity not only donated but got to work sorting supplies and creating the “tickets” the children were given to then pick out their own school supplies.  On August 6th we made our way to Gonzales where the children of Camp Corda were able to pick out their school supplies in our little pop up store.  In addition to delivering school supplies, we were happy to be able to award four scholarships for this upcoming semester.  Last but not least, save the date! October 16th will be Running with Love's first annual fundraiser at Diablo Country Club, ticket sales will be live next week.

Thank you for the continued love and support,

May 

May 22 was a great day for the kids of Camp Corda! Our annual field trip was a huge success, leaving everyone hopeful and in high spirits!  Starting the day off by visiting CSU East Bay, the high school students and middle school students toured campus while the younger kids got to play on the campus green.  We were so happy to hear that one of the high school students loved the campus and had a special interest in their nursing program.  Following the tour we all ate lunch prepared by National Charity League and continued our trip over to the Chabot Space and Science Center.  There we went to the planetarium, learned how astronauts survive in space, went to Bill Nye's Climate Lab, and looked through telescopes.  Overall it was an amazing day for everyone at Running with Love!
As always, thank you for the continued love and support!

2015 in Review
 

Field Trip
In May our field trip with the children of Camp Corda was a huge success! We started off at the campus of California State University Monterey where we took the kids on a tour.  We discussed the many different majors the college has to offer and the updates being made to the campus. After the college tour we visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, exploring the touch pools and the open sea tank.  The kids had a great time doing activities and seeing all the animals the aquarium had to offer.  We finished the day with a picnic on the beach and playing in the water.
   
Scholarships
We are happy to have given scholarships to two students this past year. Our first student, Rigoberto has been studying Education at Hartnell Junior College in Salinas.  We are extremely excited to announce Rigoberto’s transfer to San Jose State University in Spring of 2016. Our second recipient Luis, is a freshman at Chico State majoring in Agricultural Sciences.  In his first semester he is studying math, chemistry, history, agriculture, and philosophy. 
School Supplies
Our annual school supply drive and delivery was another huge success.  Students were given tickets for school supplies appropriate to their grade level, which they used to pick out their own school supplies that were generously donated from our supporters.  Thank you!
 
Earlier in the year a student at St. Isidore School took it upon himself to organize a sports equipment drive which was much appreciated by the children of Camp Corda.  Thank you Connor Shwarz!
Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving was a huge success thanks to St. Isidore School and National Charity League. With their help we delivered holiday baskets to every single family of the camp. Each basket held a turkey with all the Thanksgiving fixings, we are so glad we are able to accomplish this year after year!
 
Christmas
We are excited to once again provide stocking filled with basic necessities to the parents and fun presents delivered by Santa to the children of Camp Corda.
