The ABCUSD Education Foundation held its first annual Into the Summer Fun Run at Cerritos Regional Park
today. Thousands of residents enjoyed the competitive 2k and 5k races as well the many booths stationed at the Health and Wellness Fair.

“We are very happy that the event was such a success, said Terri Villa-McDowell, President of the Foundation. ” we want to thank all our sponsors, volunteers, booth sponsors,  and board members for making this such a great event, without their help and support we could not have done it.”

The ABCUSD Education Foundation was founded in February 2012 to support district programs in jeopardy due to budget cuts.  In the last year, the Foundation has supported many programs in the ABC Unified School District, including: two Ragnar Relay race fundraisers ; an “It’s Up To All of Us” pedestrian safety public education campaign, a school backpack initiative for homeless children, supported the first ABC Reading Olympics and sponsored two summer camps—one for 6th graders and one for developmentally disabled youth.  It has organized a committed Board of individuals representing business and education who donate their time, finances and expertise to ensure that all ABC students and every ABC school succeeds.
