Team Heart of Maia

Each year, our family does our best to stay in shape and live a healthier lifestyle. For Gordon and I, we mainly do it to keep up with Marcus! He seems to be naturally athletic with an unlimited supply of energy. For the past several years our focus has been running 5K events throughout the year. One of the runs we've been participating in since 2015 is the Summer Scamper which is a charity run benefiting the kids and families at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.

Normally we register and do the run along with my brother Rommel. He lives in SoCal and comes up for the weekend just to run with us. This time, however, we've decided to do a little more than just run. We're organizing a running team... introducing...

Join us! Just click on the link above to visit our registration and fundraising page for anyone interested in running or walking with us and help raise money for the kids and families at LPCH. If you're unable to attend and join us, you can donate to a worthy cause.

The 9th Annual Summer Scamper is on Sunday, June 23 at 8:00am
on the Stanford Campus in Palo Alto.

Please feel free to share the Team Heart of Maia page with family and friends.
We would love to run/walk with you, all to help kids in the hospital!... 
See you there!
