Fall 2018 - Practice #1 & A's Game- Follow-up


Big success for RBO first practice at our new location:

  • Kudos to all the students who showed up and release all this incredible energy, making great effort to run the whole way and with a big smile!

  • Many thanks to all the volunteers who reserved their Saturday morning to run with the students, but also to help with enrollment, snacks and more...

  • A special Thank You to Kym Sterner from the YMCA who came to run a form clinic with RBO middle school and high school students, checking arms, feet, legs and more to adjust everyone's running motion. 

  • Nice to get a nice crowd at the A's Game in the evening too! Fun to see you all in section 326, cheering and dancing!
