Supporters of the Gooden Center came from far and wide to participate in the recent Gooden Center Run for Recovery event at Lacy Park in San Marino.
In addition to a 5K run for more serious runners, the event also included a costume-optional family fun run.
Development Director George Ricciardella said he was thankful to all of the participants who came out in support of the Gooden Center’s mission.
The organization is a
Pasadena-based nonprofit for mental health and substance abuse. Proceeds of the event will be used to provide scholarships to those in need.
