Run Seal Beach is accepting Grant requests for 2013 until June 1, 2013.
The Run Seal Beach Race Committee is very committed to making our annual event one of high quality and a source of pride for our City as well as our race sponsors. In 2012, our event hosted almost 6,000 participants as they had an opportunity to run or walk in a well-organized event along some of the most beautiful oceanfront areas on the West Coast and through historical Old Town Seal Beach.
We are a non-profit organization whose charter is to raise funds and awareness for recreation or fitness programs or services to benefit the greater Seal Beach Community including Rossmoor and Los Alamitos. In 2012 we awarded a new record total of $156,750 to a record 65 organizations that encompassed a wide range of community program needs. Since 2003, RSB has given back more than $825,000 to our community, representing more than 89 organizations through the years, touching thousands of residents, students, servicemen and those who are served by our community.
The non-profit charter has been in existence since 1999, although the organization has sponsored runs for 38 years. The race has continued to grow the race in its attendance and contributions each year and all the net proceeds are given back to the local communities primarily in the form of grants.
In 2011, we established a portion of our funds to be distributed through Director's Awards. These are awards are at the sole discretion of the Run Seal Beach Board of Directors and cannot be applied for. The event is planned, managed and executed 100% by volunteers, with no salaries drawn for any administration so that 100% of available proceeds are given back to the community each year.
