The Malibu Search and Rescue team is organizing their inaugural 1k/5k/10k Trail/Run/Walk and the local, all-volunteer team is seeking runners, walkers and local businesses to sponsor the event that will be held at Paramount Ranch on Saturday, October 29.
The team relies on private donations to support their life-saving search and rescue missions. All net proceeds generated from this event will go directly to the team, their equipment and other necessary supplies.
“We’re excited to be hosting this first-ever run/walk fundraising event in our community,” said Neal Thornhill of the Malibu Search & Rescue team. “We’ve been around for 45 years, and we are dedicated to what we do – saving lives as first responders. We are hoping for a great turnout of participants, and we’d also love the support from our local businesses as sponsors.”
Additional opportunities for businesses and members of the public include donations of items for a drawing, donations of products, vendor booths and opportunities to volunteer at the event. To volunteer or for more information, please call 1-844-920-MSAR (6727).
The team’s jurisdiction is 187 square miles of the Santa Monica Mountains, the cities of Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Malibu, Calabasas Hidden Hills and the nearby unincorporated areas including Topanga Canyon.
