  1. Hi,

    My name is Heidi Boynton, I am Executive Director and Co-Founder of Mini Mermaid Running Club, we are an after school running club for girls targeting schools that have greater than 65% free or reduced lunch populations. Our program is no cost for these girls and they are coached by their teachers who volunteer their time. We were founded in 2010 and have since had over 1800 girls go through our program. We are based in northern California and have a new group in Garden Grove. They have 20 girls training there and they are training for your race as the 6 week program ends in a 5k. I am writing to ask if you would be willing to offer entries for these girls and their coaches free or at a discounted price as all of our programming is run on donations.

    I really appreciate it and would love to talk more about your races if you are willing as we are working with the school districts to identify girls that are at or below the poverty line and would not be able to afford a program like this and we will need 5k races locally to support them in their graduation race. The girls do not need a tshirt as we provide one for them and provide medals for them as well.

    Please check out our website as you have time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    • They’re in for free. Will just need a total number for now if you could respond back and then I plan to update the site today with a registration form for the Santa Fun Run so if you’d copy, paste and print them, and have everyone fill them out and then mail them in, that’d be great. And we don’t have t-shirts, but we do give out medals.

  2. Wow Larry that’s wonderful! I was looking at your other races from 2013, are you planning the same race calendar for 2014? Is there an email that I can use to send you our short power point? I would LOVE to talk to you about working with the schools in Long Beach.

    THANK YOU so very much!!
