The Live Like Coco Run for Reading

Volunteers Needed

Want to lend a helping hand on the course? We need lots of volunteer support–and helpers get donuts!

Why sign up?

Not only do you get to run or walk through one of the prettiest spots in our county, you’ll also be treated to art, yoga and more. All finishers get a t-shirt (which will be splashed with colored power as you run the race) and all kids get free books.

Also, by registering, you’re supporting the Live Like Coco Foundation’s literacy programs, which last year donated more than 14,000 thousand books to kids in the Santa Cruz County area. We also support our local public and school libraries, and find other exciting
ways to support reading in our area.
