Hi Nelson, Elizabeth and I are busy planning this April's race (April 2nd at 8 AM) and we wanted to say hi and work with you to get the Boeing run club more involved this year. We want to offer the Boeing employees a very low registration price if you or the main contact in the office can help coordinate everyone. We will get a special registration form printed up which can be distributed around the office.
 We have also been working with Vanessa Pereda in the community investor office to see if we qualify for Boeing's sponsorship since we are non-profit and all our proceeds go to support other non-profit and Cancer support groups.
 Marc & Elizabeth Kane

The race web site which contains the registration form is: www.SealBeachRun.com

Registration forms are also available in the Seal Beach fitness center.

As usual we will meet at the tennis courts adjacent to the sign-in area at 7:45 AM for a Boeing group picture.
