Volunteer Opportunity with MCYD: Help Support MarinKids on March 30th!

Volunteer with Marin County Young Democrats!

MarinKids has teamed up to co-host the first annual Marin County Swim to benefit MarinKids on Saturday March 30th at McNears Beach County Park in San Rafael. The event coincides with the Marin Half Marathon at McNears in the morning, also hosted by Sustainable Sports Foundation and benefitting the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund. The events will be linked by a free and family-friendly Healthy Eating Active Living Expo & Kids’ Zone from 8am to 4pm.
