My family participated in the Summer Scamper for three years while in the San Francisco area. It is an amazing event to raise funds for patients and families at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.

The  9th annual Summer Scamper races around the Stanford campus. The Packard Children’s is a not-for-profit hospital treating children in the community who need specialized care, regardless of their families’ financial means.

Events with causes seem to bring out the best in a runner because you are running for something other than your own accomplishment. The Summer Scamper volunteers do an amazing job of cheering on the participants.

The event is great for children and adults. Check it out!
