No More Poverty is a new sponsor of the Coastal 5K Family Fun Run & Festival, hosted by and benefiting the Pacifica Resource Center (PRC). This charity event, to be held Saturday, August 25, 2012, includes a five kilometer run alongside the magnificent Pacific Ocean and a finish-line festival with live music, kids games, face painting, and local vendors. Runners and walkers of all levels are welcome!
“Since 1974, the Pacifica Resource Center has been serving its community by providing assistance, critical services, and advocacy to those in need,” says Michael Omidi, M.D. co-founder of No More Poverty. “We are excited to sponsor this terrific family event which supports the Center and helps further its life-changing work.”
The Pacifica Resource Center’s vision is to ensure the basic needs of its community members are met and that they are empowered with an opportunity to thrive. For every dollar donated, the PRC uses 91 cents to provide food and shelter for those struggling to make ends meet. To help stabilize families and individuals, the Center provides a safety net of food, housing assistance, and other critical services along with advocacy, coaching, information and referrals. Pacifica is a coastal community of more than 37,000 people, located to the southwest of San Francisco, California. More about the PRC is available at pacresourcecenter.org.
