If you're a runner, you love getting outside and enjoying fresh air and beautiful scenery. And if you're lucky, you live close to or can easily access a peaceful trail with beautiful views. Poppy Hills organized and held its annual four-mile "Run Fore Fun" on its picturesque Pebble Beach golf course property on Sunday, Jan. 15. And 150 runners from around Monterey Bay quickly signed up as they recognized that this was a run to participate in -- both for the awe-inspiring views throughout the Del Monte Forest and to give to a great cause.
Run Fore Fun Benefits Youth on Course
The four-mile run raised $20k, in total, for Youth on Course, which provides opportunities for kids through access to affordable golf, caddie programs, employment, scholarships and internships. Members of Youth on Course are able to play golf at participating golf courses for $5 or less and are automatically signed up as members of the NCGA and receive an official NCGA Handicap Index!
