We are SJVRC, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established in September 2016, and consists of compassionate volunteers to raise funds for the unprivileged children throughout Vietnam along with promoting running within the Vietnamese community. On September 27, 2020, we are hosting our 4th Annual SJVRC Charity 5K and 10K race, which is the first of its kind running event in Northern California for the Vietnamese Community and all nationalities.
The race welcomes everyone and includes: from casual beginning runners to active elite runners with different fitness levels and running background. SJVRC’s primary goals are to encourage and foster physical health; expanding community support, networking; and most importantly to raise funds to support orphanages – “One Mile 4 One Child.” Charity fund.
Runners will start from the beautiful Lake Almaden and traverse along scenic Los Alamitos Creek trail, turn around and finish at the Arroyo picnic area at the lake to enjoy the wonderful post-race treats and live music hosted by the Def Con and Singer Victoria Thuy Vi McDowell. This is a family friendly event suitable for the whole family and friends.
All participants will receive a timing bib, tech T-shirt and finisher’s medal designed by the local artists.
Awards are given out to top 3 5K/10K males and females.
All proceeds go to OneMile4OneChild charity fund, 501(c)(3)
Due to the safety of all runners, no dogs and strollers are allowed.
