Amador benefit today for earthquake victims in Nepal

'Run 4 Relief' event goal is $15,000

Amador Valley High School is hosting a benefit run Wednesday for victims of the earthquakes in Nepal.

Students, faculty, administrators and others will run/walk for at least 40 minutes on the school's track in eight shifts starting at 8 a.m. The last run will be from 3:10 to 3:50 p.m.

In the past week, participants in the run have been acquiring sponsorship from family, businesses and friends, with a goal of gaining at least $20 from their sponsors. Once they complete their 40-minute run, they collect the promised funding, turn in their money to a designated teacher or advisor, and then are eligible to receive a "Run 4 Relief" t-shirt.

The school-wide goal for aid to Nepal is $15,000.

Amador Valley students are actively involved in helping people during times of tragedy. “Run
for Relief” is a physical education endorsed signature practice that combines fitness and goodwill.
Students, faculty and staff acquire community sponsorships for victims of natural disasters.
Run for Relief’s sole purpose is to help people in need get financially “back on their feet”.

Past Run for Relief events have included: 2005 Hurricane Katrina ($23,000), 2007 Southern
California Wild Fires ($12,000), 2010 Haiti Earthquakes ($30,000) and 2012 Hurricane Sandy
($13,000). 2015 Run for Relief Nepal - ???

This is a great community event. Please consider sponsoring an Amador student. Thank you
