[ARCHIVED] $10,000 Donation to Rec & Parks Scholarship Fund from St. Paddy’s Day 5K

On July 26th, Santa Rosa Recreation & Parks had a pool party at Finley Aquatic Center! The occasion was to accept a generous $10,000 donation from Fleet Feet Santa Rosa to the Recreation & Parks Scholarship Fund. These are proceeds from the 2022 St. Patrick's Day 5K fundraiser. The fund provides scholarships for swim lessons, summer camps, and other recreation programs, making these life saving skills and enriching experiences available to more members of our community. This donation alone will provide scholarships for some 400 local children and adults! 

Thank you to Fleet Feet and to race sponsors Old Caz Beer, Active 20-30 of Santa Rosa #50, Wine Country Radio, Santa Rosa Water, Brooks Running, and Stockham Construction. And, THANK YOU to all of our race participants for supporting this awesome cause!
