Yours Humanly 2018 Break a Sweat for Education Raises $25,000 for Local and Global Programs
Presented by Capital One, popular Break a Sweat funds education for underprivileged children
By: Yours Humanly
More than 400 entrants registered for the popular family-friendly event, sponsored by Capital One and held at Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek, with another 100 virtual runners and walkers who completed the 5K course wherever they happened to be in the United States.
This year, Yours Humanly partnered with MDUSD Education Foundation and PEAK Education Foundation. Because of their partnerships, a portion of the proceeds from the 5K fundraiser will go directly to underserved schools in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.
"We truly change lives when we educate children, and the impact of that education reaches far beyond city, village, state, and national borders as educated children grow up to be leaders, innovators, and contributing members of society," says Sunny Singh, Yours Humanly Founder & CEO. "This race—this fundraising event—rewards people on so many levels and we thank all the dedicated sponsors, participants, and volunteers who make this possible for the benefit of the children we serve."
Singh and the Yours Humanly organization recognize Presenting Sponsor Capital One; Event sponsors Clif Bar, Cogenics, Costco Wholesale, Hall Sports Ventures, Road Runner Sports, and The Fit Potato; and Event partners MDUSD Education Foundation and PEAK Education Foundation.
