Go for a Run with Assemblyman Jeff Gorell

Once again, the Club is taking part in the Santa to the Sea half marathon Charity Challenge, where race participants can help raise money for the Club. As one of five designated charities, BGCOP is working with Assemblyman Jeff Gorell, who will be our team captain. Gorell will help motivate runners and community members to donate to the Club during the race.

“This is our third year in a row taking part in the charity challenge. With Gorell as our team captain this year, we hope to raise $25,000 during the race,” said Tim Blaylock, BGCOP chief professional officer.

Race participants can choose BGCOP as their charity when they register. But you don’t need to run in the race to help out. There is a separate donation section, where anyone in the community can help raise money during the race by choosing BGCOP. Participants who help raise money for the Club can receive a number of prizes and incentives, including an iPod shuffle, movie passes and Boys & Girls Club T-shirts. The top three fundraisers will receive a gift certificate and an award.

The Santa to the Sea race takes part Dec. 8 in Oxnard and offers four different types of races for people to walk or run: half marathon, two-person relay race, 5k run and a 1k fun run.

Help us make the Santa to the Sea a successful event and help BGCOP at the same time!
