Santa Cruz 2017 Human Race Walkathon and Fun Run! @ The Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County

Santa Cruz County is already a pretty dreamy place to be but it is about to get more magical as 130 Human Race teams hit the pavement to begin fundraising for their goal. On March 28th teams will kick off a six week campaign to make magic, give more,and grant wishes as they collectively step out to ask the community for financial support for the 37th Human Race Walkathon and Fun Run.

You can show your support by choosing your favorite cause, raising funds, then joining us at the Human Race, Saturday May 13th where nearly 2000 individuals will converge along West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz to celebrate community.

Race day includes a five-mile walk and fun run, complimentary breakfast, music along the course, a costume contest, a BBQ lunch and festivities.

The Volunteer Center has geared to create a truly magical day at the Race with the 2017 fairytale theme. Not only can you expect the usual features of a people’s parade of lively costumes and banners, free food, and music along the course but they will also have a post race family friendly fair, and plenty of storybook themed activities for all ages.
Can’t make it to the race? You can still step up for the causes you care about by making a donation. With over 130 deserving non-profits, schools, and community groups to choose from we are sure you will find a team that inspires you.

The 2017 Human Race is brought to you by the Volunteer Center of Santa Cruz County in partnership with Community Foundation Santa Cruz County.

The event will feature a keynote speaker and two dozen education sessions to help micro entrepreneurs navigate the marketplace to increase their exposure, grow their business and boost profitability. 100 tickets have already been pre-sold.

“The 82% Micro Business Summit was a great experience and we left with ideas that we implemented and contacts that have become sales.” – Doug Conrad, Owner, Boulder Creek Hardware.

The County, along with partners Central Coast Small Business Development Center, Slingshot SV, SCORE, and the San Lorenzo Valley Chamber of Commerce, wants to recognize the backbone of our local economy by holding an annual event that honors their spirit while giving them real-world tools to apply during day-to-day operations.

All About Theatre Presents Into The Woods @ Louden Nelson
Apr 28 @ 7:00 pm – May 6 @ 7:00 pm

“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, Into the Woods and All About Theatre Youth ages 9-14 will brilliantly perform this classis for 2 weekends beginning April 28th. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Also in the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, the Wolf who loves tasty little girls, the Witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and the Princes chasing after their loves. By the end of Act I, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after. But in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.
