We Run Orange County’s Kids
FLOC’s November 2009 event took place at Hennessey’s Tavern in Dana Point where the entire bar was turned into a casino to raise awareness and money for WeROCK. Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board, Andrea Kooiman, shared her passion for helping kids build their self-image through the discipline and challenge of running a marathon. As of yet, no FLOC members have signed up to join her running team, but together they helped generate over $1200 for the new non-profit!!
“A marathon is 26.2 miles and what we do is show kids that with hard work, determination, support from their families, support from their friends, that really anything is possible. It doesn’t matter who they are or what they look like…they can hold their head high knowing what they’ve achieved!” – Andrea Kooiman, WeROCK Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board
