Help Save the Thank You Run!
As planning for the 9th Annual Thank You Run started to get underway we were informed that the 4S Ranch HOA Board of Directors would no longer be granting access to the trails for Thanksgiving morning, effectively ending the Thank You Run tradition.
The HOA B.O.D. issued the following statement: “Usage of these areas is limited to members of the Association and their guests” even though over 70% of the participation consists of members, guests and family.
We also wanted to remind you of the impact the Thank You Run has had over the past 8 years:
- Over $150,000 has been donated to both the 4S Ranch/Del Sur Community Foundation as well as the San Diego ALS Association.
- ALL PROCEEDS of the event are donated directly back into the community
- 70% of the event consists of local residents and families who have utilized the race as a family tradition.
- The event focuses on local business involvement including Karl Strauss and Just Run.
- We focus on having as limited impact to vehicular traffic race morning by utilizing the trails.
To help us continue the Thank You Run tradition and keep much needed funds flowing to our partner charities we would love you help!
If you could take a minute to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about why you love the Thank You Run, we can share your stories with the HOA Board of Directors. If you have direct communication with the HOA we would love for you to share directly with them!
THANK YOU for your continued support and we hope to see you again on Thanksgiving morning! In the meantime enjoy a few photos of the impact your race entry fees have had on the local community!
