Surf City Marathon


Yesterday, I ran in the Surf City 1/2 marathon with my cousin and a few friends. I really enjoyed running in the event and seeing the enthusiasm of over 18,000 participants.

(Run for Mobility Wheel Chair)

Proceeds from the race benefited Run for Mobility, a nonprofit that donates wheel chairs constructed out of outdoor furniture and mountain bike wheels to the needy. The wheel chairs cost around $50 to construct and yesterday's event raised enough money to supply over 11,000 wheel chairs! Surf's up to that!
