5TH ANNUAL COLUSA CIRCLE 5K 
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 5th annual Colusa Circle 5K! It was wonderful to see you all in Colusa Circle this year for our annual fun run for a charitable cause!

We registered 157 runners, and Zip Code East Bay matched every dollar raised for a total of $7,500 for KIDS for the BAY, an organization that has been connecting children with nature, turning children on to science, and inspiring environmental action for 30 years. The funds that we raised at this year's race will support KIDS for the BAY’s environmental education programs for under-resourced elementary schools here in the East Bay. We also collected used running shoes and new socks for BOSS “Building Opportunities for Self Sufficiency”.

From all of us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. We look forward to next year!

3RD ANNUAL (VIRTUAL) COLUSA CIRCLE 5K​: 

Due to COVID restrictions, this year's 3rd Annual Colusa Circle 5k was a virtual race, which raised $2500 for this year's race beneficiary Urban Tilth.

Urban Tilth hires and trains local residents to cultivate agriculture in west Contra Costa County to help our community build a more sustainable, healthy, and just food system. They use 7 school and community gardens and small urban farms to teach and employ community members to grow, distribute, cook, and consume thousands of pounds of local produce each year, to create a more equitable and just food system within a healthier and more self-sufficient community.

Thank you to our amazing group of participants who kept the racing spirit alive desite the pandemic! We look forward to racing with you again next year!
