Race Supports Art, Science, Music Technology and PE for Local Students
The Carmel Valley 5K Race Committee announced today that Kaiser Permanente is the new title sponsor of its annual 5K road race, which will be conducted on the Saturday January 25th 2014 at 8:00 am. The Kaiser Permanente Carmel Valley 5K & Fun Run raises money to support the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (“DMSEF”). This non-profit organization provides funding for Art, Music, Technology, Science and P.E. at all eight Del Mar Unified Schools. “What a great way to start off the new year by getting out and getting active” said James Malone, Chief Administrative Officer for Kaiser Permanente San Diego. “At Kaiser Permanente, we are thrilled to support programs that create healthy communities and foster healthy lifestyles.” Registration is now open for the 5K at Carmel Valley 5K. The USA Track and Field Sanctioned course will begin at Carmel Del Mar Elementary School and will head south on Carmel Creek Road down to the bike trail, heading east parallel to HWY 56. Runners will pass the Kaiser Permanente Carmel Valley medical offices and will continue along a beautiful tree lined path mixed with paved and trail running, splashed with some rolling hills. The course loops back to Carmel Creek Road leading to the finish line at Carmel Del Mar Elementary School. The community is welcome to join us for our Family Friendly post party and expo from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm that will include a variety of different expo booths from local businesses, the award ceremony, live music, jumpies, food and other entertainment. “Kaiser has been such an avid supporter of Health and Fitness in the San Diego community, we are so excited to welcome them to Carmel Valley and partner with them” stated Katie Wilsey, who is the director and founder of the race. “This is a race for everyone, from fast elite runners to beginner runners participating in their first race”. The Carmel Valley 5K also has a Fun Run, which allows both kids and parents to participate in a one-mile non-competitive run.
