Run Seal Beach, the official arm of the Seal Beach 5k-10k, handed out $115,000 in grants this year to 64 local organizations, including the city of Seal Beach. The Run Seal Beach directors also gave in $11,500 Director’s Awards grants to 17 organizations.
Race day has come and gone. Thousands of happy walkers, runners, volunteers, sponsors and spectators left, filled with the spirit of community that comes from being a part of the Little Run with a Big Heart! But for the seven members of the Run Seal Beach Board, much of the work was yet to be done.
The core charter of Run Seal Beach is to raise funds and awareness for recreation or fitness programs and services to benefit the greater Seal Beach Community including Rossmoor and Los Alamitos. Since 2003, RSB had given back over $1,600,000 to our community, representing more than 114 organizations through the years, touching thousands of residents, students, servicemen and those who are served by our community. This is done through a grant process and the gift of Director’s awards.
