Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is committed to finding ways of engaging and improving our community. Team Chicas was formed in effort to connect with our community and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Offering weekly trainings, Team Chicas is open to all who want to exercise in a friendly, energetic, no pressure environment. Our goal is not only to motivate people to create change on an individual basis; but also to work as a team and foster participating in local runs that raise awareness and funds for a worthy causes. Team Chicas has proudly taken part in Run to Feed the Hungry, UC Davis Camp Kesem 5K (proceeds sponsor summer camp for a child who’s parent has been struck by cancer), and The Women’s Fitness Festival. This year we look forward to adding one more run to our list Break Free Run- the race to end human trafficking.
In an effort to reach a wider scope of interests and continue encouraging physical activity, Chicas Latinas de Sacramento has partner up with Latino Outdoors. This collaboration has lead to hiking, backpacking, and canoeing activities all free and open to the public. As we move forward we hope to continue growing and spreading healthy habits in our community. Sign-up, learn more: bit.ly/ChicasRunningGroup
