“We are so excited to have been selected as the featured organization. Selection was based on the number of registrants for this event. We are so proud of our runners on team SOCAL who are weight loss surgery patients, family and friends. We are honored that the WLSFA Logo and our cause will be on the bib of all the runners in the race. This helps us raise awareness for the WLSFA and the Southern California chapter with premium placement of our booth at the event," stated Sandi Henderson and Wendy Campbell, co-leaders of the SOCAL Chapter and members of the National WLSFA Board of Director.
