Foundation news: Wrigley River Run and Acts of Love Events
By Lieu Suss
AUHS students will be helping the Long Beach Neighborhood Foundation (LBNF) at their Annual Wrigley River Run/Walk on June 4, 2022. BSN and MSN students will attend to medical needs at the start/finish line medics tent and at three water stations along the course. In addition, many AUHS students volunteered to provide race day support such as registering participants and vendors, running messages, staffing the water stations, preparing and serving fruit, preparing and supervising the gear check area, monitoring barricades, distributing event t-shirts, handing out medals, and documenting each runner’s finish time. LBNF’s event coordinator, Ms. Cathy, was amazed by the overwhelming support of our AUHS students. She wrote, “YOU are a volunteer coordinator’s dream come true! The Wrigley River Run requires 118 volunteers to operate, and your students have filled 112 of those spaces already! That is amazing! We are really looking forward to meeting them at the event.”
In addition, another AUHS Foundation Acts of Love grocery distribution is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
