Race for the Arts sounds like what happens in my world every weekday at quitting time! I punch out at my day job and hurry home to make something. But what we’re talking about here is the annual 5K run/walk and Kids Fun Run that goes down in William Land Park, this year on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017. Benefiting California nonprofits that support visual, performing, cultural and literary arts, the 19th Annual Race for the Arts culminates in a free arts festival once the finish line is crossed. Its dozens of beneficiaries include B Street Theatre, Camellia Waldorf School and Chalk it Up! Raise your heartrate while you raise money for local causes that help make our communities a more vibrant place to live. Visit Raceforthearts.com to register, pledge or volunteer.
