The Run 4 Beatty and Brynn Foundation provides scholarships to high school athletes involved in athletics and cross-country runners
The annual Brynn and Brittney Frace Memorial Charity Run continued to be a success in its third year, although the run had to be virtually suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The annual race is traditionally held in the hills of Lake Santa Margarita, where participants celebrate the spirit and love of running that Brynn and Beatty have shared throughout their lives.
This year riders from 3 to 31 years old could participate. January at a place of their choice sharing the same spirit.
Brynn and Brittney were more than passionate about running – they were passionate about life. The light they carried with them everywhere continues to shine through the Chicken Run event that bears their name, and although participants were not allowed to come together for a day of miles and smiles, the public showed its support this year: 320 people signed up to participate in the annual event.
We didn’t feel like we were losing this year and becoming virtual in terms of attendance. We’ve been very lucky, says Shari Frace. We were able to continue with the race we had originally planned and felt it was personal, even if it was virtual this year.
As in previous years, participants who registered received a bag containing a t-shirt, bib and socks, all based on a theme created by Britney or Brynn.
The T-shirt was based on a drawing by our youngest daughter, Brittney, of a free-range chicken, Frase said. It turned out to be the perfect design for this year’s race, as we are all now training a bunch of free-range chickens. It was a perfect design, and this year’s race was virtual because we could challenge people to choose their own track.
The race was created to preserve happy memories and give back to the community. Proceeds from the race go annually to the Run 4 Bitti and Brynn Foundation, a nonprofit that funds scholarships for high school students and athletes from Paso Robles and Atascadero schools. The foundation also focuses on community relations and providing athletic shoes to runners in need.
This year, the foundation established four scholarships in North County, including two for AHS and PRHS. The scholarships are worth $1,000 each and are reserved for student-athletes who have competed in cross country or track and field for at least two seasons.
The Run 4 Bitti and Brynn Foundation has also donated to Chico State and its cross country and track and field programs.
The committee for the 4th Annual Chicken Run has already started work and has the 2nd Annual Chicken Run in the works. The date has been set for January 2022, with the theme of Continuing Transport.
