Each year Lodi Academy Schools holds a CHARITY FAMILY FUN RUN to help support local community organizations working on behalf of those who need it most in Lodi.
September 25, 2016 will be our 6th Annual Fun Run! Due to popular demand we are continuing the COLOR RUN aspect of our 5K and Kids ½ mile. What we have in the works is going to be exciting and fun!
You may want to know that with your help, in the last few years we’ve raised more than $39,000 for local support organizations including LODI 180-Youth Programs, 180-Lodi's Adolescent and Family Services Program,LODI HOUSE and LODI BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB!
This year we have chosen Grace and Mercy Soup Kitchen and Food Bank as the charity beneficiary of the 2016 FAMILY FUN RUN. They are located on Sacramento Street in Lodi, California and provide services to 42,000 people in our community a year. This includes food bags, hot meals, clothing, furniture, referrals, diapers and dog food to approximately 3,500-4,000 people monthly.
Please plan to join us with your family as a runner or volunteer for the Fun Run. You may also wish to consider donating to this event as a corporate sponsor. Grace and Mercy is in need of a walk in freezer and industrial fan that will extend the shelf life of the food in their food bank. They can use any help you can give toward these goals and our local community will benefit directly from your participation.
If you have any questions, or would like to sign-up to volunteer please contact Karen Kanas at Lodi Academy Schools, 209.368.2781 ext.105. You can register as a runner online at Active.com or click on the form and turn it in to the school office.
Together we can make a greater difference!
