Torrey Pines High School Key Club has been volunteering all over San Diego throughout the year.  As the biggest Carmel Valley community service club at Torrey Pines High School, the Key Club never fails to gather groups of eager and dedicated high school students to help the community out in a variety of ways.  Every week, the Key Club has general meetings with its members to present several community service opportunities.  One of the most recent events that was attended was the Muscular Dystrophy Association Muscle Walk of San Diego.  Held at Crown Point Park on February 26, walks and races similar to this one are some of the most frequently attended events for the Torrey Pines High School Key Club members. As a frequent attendee of such events, this was again very exciting for me. Despite the similarities between this event and many others, the tasks and causes that we work for always vary and keep our experiences exciting.

As the coordinator of this event, I was involved with arranging rides, contacting the event organizer, and finding students to volunteer with us for the day.  Spanning about five hours of volunteering on a warm Sunday morning, this event was relatively long compared to others we have participated in.  Once we arrived, we were sent to help with registration and directing racers.  After enjoying some complimentary bagels and juice, we proceeded to help out at the poster-making and craft table.  At the tables, teams of walkers came to make motivational posters for their friends and relatives.  We helped to decorate posters, organize the craft supplies, and direct racers to the table.  We also had an opportunity to decorate hats with lots of streamers and other decorative materials and markers.  The event was filled with high-energy, and there were lots of booths set up giving away free frozen yogurt, balloon animals, face-painting, and much more.  At the start of the race and as the racers began to embark on their race, all of the decorated posters and hats could be seen everywhere.  As the cheering crew for racers, we gladly took our places at the finish line and throughout the course.  Our efforts to make the event as successful as possible was very fulfilling.  Our group really enjoyed participating in the event and we are looking forward to lending a helping hand at the next opportunity!

My name is Connie Liu, and I am the current Key Club treasurer for Torrey Pines High School.  As a senior at Torrey Pines, I have enjoyed a full four years as a Key Club member, and have enjoyed every minute of it.  Through divisional spirit events, club fundraisers, and weekly service projects, it has been an adventure through and through.  I initially joined Key Club in order to make an impact on my community, and I feel that Key Club provides a very suitable gateway to do so.  Starting from my junior year, I became even more involved by coordinating events and helping to organize fundraisers and multiple club-sponsored events.  It is in the spirit of our club to provide service, build character, and provide leadership.  Our club will continue to do everything we can to fulfill these goals.  Key Club for Life!
