We need help with set-up and many other tasks for our Race Against Extinction - a 5K obstacle course run/walk on the sand Huntington Beach. The goal will be to will raise awareness and funds for endangered species both locally and around the globe. People of all ages can come out to participate in this fun and competitive setting with various contests and prizes. Following the race, enjoy the music (band TBA) and the various booths, a silent auction and even pet adoptions, as the other players finish. Once the race has concluded there will be an award ceremony for the top finishers (Kids & Adults) and top fundraisers - both individuals and teams, and raffle winners. This will be an exciting community event with a purpose that is sure to be a memorable one!
