The Anaheim Semper 5K&10K is proudly sponsored by the Anaheim 13th MEU Adoption Committee.
Established in 2007, when the City of Anaheim officially adopted the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) based at Camp Pendleton, this volunteer-based, citizen-run 501(c)(3) group provides meaningful support to the Marines and Sailors of the 13th MEU and their family members.
All event proceeds directly benefit the Marines, Sailors of families of the 13th MEU. With the generous support of our runners and sponsors we are able to provide emergency relief funds as needs may arise, subsidize holiday events (Easter, Thanksgiving, Birthday Ball and Christmas), provide Welcome Home Bags upon return from deployment, host the Welcome Home festivities for the families as we await the return of their loved one. We also put on a yearly car wash hosted by: Jerry Zomorodian, ARCO/AM PM located on Anaheim Blvd & Broadway.
To see what we do with the donations, check out our newsletter on our website: www.Anaheim13thmeu.org and for more information on the Anaheim 13th MEU Adoption Committee. Committee event photos can be viewed on the Adoption Committee's website.
Your generous gift will allow us to help our wonder heroes of the 13th MEU and their families.
