On March 4th and 5th we provided our solar roller for the Ojai Roadrunners Celebration and Fundraiser. During their impressive weekend weekend of events, hosted an unprecedented 10 Olympic Medalists, World Record Holders, and elite athletes in Track & Field right here in Ojai!
At CSE we’re always happy to support our local community events. It was an honer to be involved in an event with the caliber guests of:
- Carl Lewis, who won nine gold medals while making five consecutive U.S. Olympic teams from 1980 to 1996
- Mary Decker Slaney, who made four Olympic teams and remains the only athlete to hold every American running record from the 800 to 10,000 meters
- Other track luminaires Steve Lewis, Michael Powell, Kevin Young, Claudette Groenendal, Jackie Edwards, Francis Santin Jones and Richard Slaney
But the biggest honor was being a part of an effort to further expose over 300 adults kids to the benefits, joys and possibilities of running. The event also raise over $25,000 in cash and in-kind donations to further running programming in our community.
Thank you Ojai Roadrunners for letting us be a part of this stellar event and 2016 season kick-off.
