May 10, 2014 – Race Day
First of all, a special thanks to the Human Race crew who works endlessly to provide us with this extremely helpful opportunity!
What is the Human Race?
The Human Race is a nationwide community fundraising event for nonprofit organizations and is the largest collaborative fundraising event in Sonoma County! This event unites the non-profits of Sonoma County to all work together achieving goals. It has been one of the most successful fundraisers for local nonprofits for over 32 years and raised over $750,000 for local charities in 2013. We are excited to participate in this event not only to help us financially meet our goals, but also meet and build relationships with other non-profits in our area.
Who We Are
The 4-H Foundation of Sonoma County is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support, promote, and enhance the 4-H youth program of Sonoma County. The Foundation owns a building known as the 4-H Center in Rohnert Park. This building’s purpose is to provide 4-H a cost-free facility where they can host events and meetings. In 2013, the 4-H Center hosted over 6,000 4-Her’s at over 200 events. A big part of the Foundation’s mission is to raise funding for 4-H. In 2013, the Foundation awarded $24,500 in scholarships and $27,500 given to support different 4-H projects and events.
How You Can Help
According to Children’s Defense Fund, in California every 7 minutes a child is abused or neglected. 4-H provides a safe place where children can feel valued and encouraged, as well as gaining valuable life skills. We are asking friends and family to sponsor us in supporting Sonoma County’s youth by giving $10, $25, $50 or whatever you can to help. All donations are tax-deductible. You can make a difference in our community!
