LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. - May 29, 2015 - PRLog -- The 37th Annual YMCA Run in the Parks is soon approaching on Saturday, July 4, 2015. The event was started in 1978, before the City of Laguna Niguel and the Y was in its current location off Crown Valley Parkway. The event was started by residents who wanted to improve the fitness of the community and highlight nonprofit work. One of the race founders, Bill Pasqual is still a participant in the race today and has not missed a race as either a volunteer or runner since it started.

The event is a 10K run, 5K run/walk, and children’s races that is held in the Crown Valley Community Park and Laguna Niguel Regional Parks. Key community partners include the City of Laguna Niguel, the Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce, and OC Parks. The Title Sponsor this year is Power Crunch, a maker of energy drinks and bars. Power Crunch’s focus on healthy lifestyles makes a great partnership for the Y. Each year, 1,200-1,600 individuals participate in the event, and many more come to watch. Almost 200 volunteers work the event. Some of the volunteers and runners have been involved in the race since its creation.

Each year, the proceeds from the event directly benefit the children and families in the Laguna Niguel community through membership at the Y. Money raised will be used to sustain and grow Y programs and services and ensure that all children and families have the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive at the Y. Proceeds from this event support opportunities far beyond basketball leagues for kids or group exercise classes for seniors; they provide invaluable, life-enriching experiences to children and families.
