As a result of the 5K and the contribution of the Nogales Customs House Brokers Association, we were able to grant equipment to Lincoln Elementary from Nogales Unified School District and Calabasas Middle School from Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District.

At FPAA we are very pleased with the participation. We hope to continue offering events of this nature that promote community involvement and healthy living!
