The 9th Annual Boo Run 5k and Fun Run is coming!
EGA’s main source of funding is the Boo Run 5k and Fun Run. 100% of raised monies at this timed event go towards facilitating our adaptive camps, adaptive sports, adaptive swim lessons, coffee talks, and providing scholarships to campers.
Because disabilities don’t take a vacation, our summer camps provide much needed enrichment, socialization, and fun for campers as well as respite for caregivers during the summer break. We offer two different camps based upon age. Our campers make friends, go on field trips, and most importantly, have a blast! Whether it’s learning how to work as a team, catch a ball, dribble down the court, or swim across the pool, EGA is helping to provide opportunities and community involvement.
Via the scenic San Gabriel Park, runners sport costumes while speeding across the finish line. And don’t forget the costume contest for the kids! Come join us to support EGA and special needs kids and young adults in your community!
Schools around the corner, but summer is still here! Two of our swimmers, Jack and Lila, are featured in the local publication, the City Insider . Check it out!
