Thanks a lot for our courageous volunteers who are spending a lot of time fundraising to help RBO finance all the wonderful projects we have been able to organize and are planning for next Season. Shirts for all, Multiple races to run, Trips to Crissy Field by Bus, Trail Runs in the Oakland Hills, Yoga for the Half Marathon training, Shoes for the younger students, Athletic Bras for our female runners, nutrition clinic speakers and more projects in the plan that could not happen without the generosity of our donors. Please encourage your friends to donate to RBO through some of these campaigns.
