SATURDAY, JUNE 18 (9:30 A.M.) – RUN FOR UKRAINE 5K:
A recreational fun run to benefit Ukraine will be held at Laguna Lake Park in San Luis Obispo on Saturday, June 18 starting at 9:30 AM, sponsored by Unitarian Universalists San Luis Obispo. Participants are asked to register ahead of time at RunForUkraineSLO.org. Participants can register by donating to the campaign and the donation will serve as run registration. This event is a family-friendly, flat 5K welcoming walkers, runners, and all who want to support Ukraine and its people. Check-in for the event will begin at 8:30 AM. Bananas and water courtesy of Tenet Health will be distributed post-race. All funds raised will support the people of Ukraine and will be distributed in Kharkiv in Eastern Ukraine, which has been unable to receive humanitarian aid due to its proximity to the front lines. Volunteers and friends of San Luis Obispo resident Slava Narozhnyi, originally from Kharkiv, will be distributing supplies, food, and aid purchased from this fundraiser.
