Mission Statement

Run-Walk Events is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to create world-class events that raise money in support of childhood fitness.

Description

Run-Walk Events was originally created to host the Race Across the USA. We ran a marathon a day from Huntington Beach, CA all the way to the White House in Washington DC 4 1/2 months later. Along the way, we visited over 5,000 students in 29 schools to challenge and encourage them around getting active and eating right.

Using the Race Across the USA as our launchpad, we are planning a series of running events that will begin on January 1, 2017 in Anaheim. The following year, we plan to add San Diego and Santa Barbara. Every event we hold will be a fundraiser in support of a local childhood fitness organization.

Being a part of Run-Walk Events was a very interesting and meaningful experience. I was a Business Development Intern with the organization. Darren mentored me very well as Business Development was new to me. As a student, my work was carefully planned around my schedule. This helped me to manage my studies and intern work properly. My feedback was encouraged and appreciated. This helped me to learn new things and use it for the benefit of the organization. Completing my internship with Run-Walk Events has improved my ability to understand an organization and utilize my skills to solve its needs.
