The Resolve2Run 5K-10K is an annual fundraiser for the Chicago Park 4-H Club. Our club, the oldest continuously running 4-H Club in California, has been firmly planted in this community since 1929. We are committed to the youth of Nevada County, providing amazing opportunities for our 100+ members to learn and grow through our many projects, such as raising animals (beef, sheep, swine, goats, rabbits and poultry), sewing, fine arts, crafts, aeronautics, website design and development, biking, survival skills, cooking and much more. We have an emphasis on serving our community and giving back through service projects such as our Annual Fire Safe Clean Up for the elderly who are unable to care for their property. We also partner with Chicago Park School PTA and Peardale-Chicago Park Volunteer Firefighters to provide this run which is an opportunity to start the new year with healthy habits. We felt that it was important to have a run available at the time when people are making resolutions, giving them the chance to begin right away, starting with this race.
Funds raised through this event enable us to keep the enrollment costs for our members reasonable, enabling more youth to participate. We also provide scholarships for graduating seniors who have excelled in leadership and service within our community. We are participants in buying animals at the Nevada County Fair’s Youth Livestock Auction, enabling more youth to succeed in their projects and making sure they’re able to participate in the following year, as well as we’re buyers at the DC Delegates Cake Auction each year enabling youth to spend a week in our nation’s capitol learning about government and history.
We appreciate all those in our community who have supported us and we hope to reciprocate in as many ways as possible!
