Leisure Sports donates $20,000 to Navy SEALS

Contribution aids families who have lost loved ones in specialized service

Leisure Sports, which owns and operates ClubSport Pleasanton and the Quad, has donated $20,000 to the Navy Seal Foundation to be used in its work in providing providing assistance for families who have lost loved ones in training or combat.

The foundation is the beneficiary of Leisure Sports' annual charity drive which this year started with fundraising campaigns on Memorial Day weekends and again during Independence Day celebrations.

Ralph Rajs, executive vice president of operations at Leisure Sports, presented the sports organization's contribution last week to Mark Kendall, the Navy SEAL Foundation's ambassador.

Kendall said the foundation serves a fundamental role within the Naval Special Warfare community by providing tragedy assistance for families who have lost a loved one in training or combat. It also sponsors family events and support to uphold morale and camaraderie, education assistance and scholarships for active-duty personnel, their spouses and their children.

Leisure Sports, a Pleasanton-based developer and operator of multipurpose athletic clubs and four-diamond hotels, is a longtime supporter of the Navy SEAL Foundation, Rajs said.
