2ND ANNUAL STAR/PAL "UNITED FOR YOUTH" 5K RUN/WALK
For the 2nd year in a row, we are lacing up our sneakers and putting our run/walk team together to compete in the Everywon San Diego 5k in support of under privileged children in our community. Please join us!
The mission of STAR/PAL is to empower underserved youth to build a safer and more prosperous community by engaging with law enforcement and collaborative partners. Sports is one of our favorite ways of reaching kids, build relationships and improving lives.
Last year we raised over $5,000 that directly sponsored 40 children to run on our team with new running shoes and a team t-shirt.
This year our goal is to reach $10,000 raised and 75 kids running! You can help!
Sign up to run on our team and fundraise for STAR/PAL. The money you raise will directly sponsor kids to run in this race with you on our team as well as other similar events and activities that STAR/PAL puts on throughout the year.
Want to be a real hero to a child immediately? Select the "sponsor a child" option during registration to immediately add 1 child to our team.
ALL STAR/PAL TEAM MEMBERS WILL RECEIVE:
- Everywon San Diego 2017 event t-shirt
- Finisher's medal
- Free event photography
- Cool new relationships
- Endorphine rush from running/walking
- Satisfaction knowing that you've directly supported improving the lives of children in our local community.

STAR/PAL offers free programs for underserved and at-risk youth in San Diego that are led by law enforcement officers. These programs focus on violence prevention, mentoring, leadership, civic engagement, outdoor enrichment, and physical fitness. Our U.S. Bank Center to Serve Youth, located at Colina Del Sol Park in the heart of Mid-City, gives a community law enforcement presence that provides safety to hundreds of youth who walk to and from school each day. Every year, thousands of youth from inner-city neighborhoods throughout San Diego participate in our impactful programs.
