City Impact is an amazing foundation and I am so proud to work for a company that supports the charities that I think are important, letting me live out my passion of running while supporting my community

Connect First employees sweated it out for the kids at the 5th annual Ventura Beachfront Marathon in Ventura, Calif. The event was a ringing success, raising over $28,000 to support City Impact in providing services to children, youth and families throughout Ventura Country.

City Impact works with over 2,800 individuals per week through a myriad of viable services; from the street outreach, gang prevention and intervention programs, school leadership/support groups, to academic mentoring to students throughout Ventura County. They also support families and assist youth who have been released from the Juvenile Justice Facility to assimilate back into the community with support systems so they may succeed.

"The 2015 Beachfront Run in Ventura was a great success this year raising over $28K!” said Shelby Faris, Connect First Marketing Program Manager. “City Impact is an amazing foundation and I am so proud to work for a company that supports the charities that I think are important, letting me live out my passion of running while supporting my community."
