Baja Runners keep on truckin’ during pandemic
CALEXICO – COVID-19 has not slowed down the Calexico Baja Runners much.
The local non-profit, whose past community service efforts have included supporting youth sports, providing academic scholarships, sending care-packages to our troops overseas, donating money to food pantries, contributing money for school supplies and events, honoring our fallen soldiers at Mountain View Cemetery, has more recently tailored its outreach to the coronavirus pandemic.
In early April, the group donated $1,160 to the Imperial Valley Food Bank, and on Saturday, they cooked lunch for El Centro Regional Medical Center staff. They dropped off carne asada with refried beans along with tortillas and salsa.
“During this pandemic the Calexico Baja Runners will continue to serve the community,” the group said in a release.
