This July 4th, join in on the 2nd Annual 4th of July 5K/10K Run-Walk at Dos Vientos in Newbury Park at 7:30am. Race proceeds benefit the Jewel Levine Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to provide hope, support, and monetary assistance to individuals and families that are under financial duress caused by extreme circumstances or life threatening medical conditions.
Danielle 'Missy' Marquis founded The Jewel Levine Foundation to honor her grandmother, Jewel Levine. Jewel struggled with kidney failure for over 15 years and went to dialysis three days a week. During this period Jewel faced numerous complications, yet never complained. “She was always up-beat and she stressed the importance of helping others,” explained Danielle. Jewel passed away in 2013, and in 2016 Danielle, with the support of her family, created the foundation to keep Jewel’s positive spirit alive through good works.
Race to start/finish at Dos Vientos Community Park, 4801 Borchard Road.
