Team Ponte
Keeping the Pace for Kids

Join Team Ponte or make a donation below to bring hope to recovering children in Southern California. As our 2nd annual race, Team Ponte members will run or walk in the America’s Finest City half marathon or 5K on August 15th 2010. We will be raising much needed funds for the Oak Grove Center, a Murrieta based 24-hour residential and educational treatment center that serves 76 children who live on campus and an additional 80-90 students who attend their nonpublic school day program. Due to state budget cuts and a decrease in private donations, Oak Grove Center is in much need.

By signing up today you can make a difference in a child’s life. We are asking each participant in the 5K to set a fundraising goal of $250 and the half marathon to set a fundraising goal of $500. As an added bonus we will be reimbursing the race fees in Ponte Winery gift certificates if the fundraising goal is met and reward the top three fundraisers with great prizes. The top fundraiser will win a one-year membership to the gym of their choice ($400), the second top fundraiser will win a case of Ponte wine of their choice ($300) along with a $100 gift certificate to the Smokehouse Restaurant and the third top fundraiser will win two tickets to our Grape Stomp Festival on September 26th ($190). If you enjoy exercising, team camaraderie and have a heart for children then this race is for you. Get ready to be part of something big!

Our collective goal is to raise $20,000 for the Oak Grove Center.

If you are not interested in joining Team Ponte but would still like to help us reach our goal please make an online contribution below. If you want to donate directly to the personal donation page of a Ponte participant, input their first and last name in the search field at the top of this page.

Thank you for your interest in helping Team Ponte!
