The first-annual River Run for Youth will send waves of participants galloping along the Sacramento River in support of the Collings Teen Center. Every day, young people throughout the West Sacramento community flock to the non-profit's location to hang out, play games, and learn in a safe, reassuring environment.
Community members can show their support for the center and its cause while soaking up riverside views on Saturday, October 15. The day's events will include timed and un-timed 5K races and walks, as well as a free quarter-mile race for children. The course begins and ends at Raley Field, and after everyone has finished, kids can head into the stadium to run the bases and hear the echos of roaring crowds by holding their ears up to empty sunflower seed shells.
