that we are announcing the cancellation of the 7th Annual Semper 5K & 10K which was originally scheduled for May 16, 2020.
This difficult decision comes after numerous conversations with the City of Anaheim, the County of Orange, prospective sponsors and so many others who were involved in the planning of this event. In order for us to put on the first class event that our participants have come to look forward to and that we want to provide to you, we would need more time than what the city can provide during this crisis. The cancellation of this event was an extremely painful decision for the Committee to make, especially since this is our one and only fundraiser in support of the Marines, Sailors and families of the 13th MEU.
On to the GOOD NEWS: We will be back next year on May 15, 2021 !!!!
While we are discouraged at this year's cancellation, we are working hard towards next year’s event with a desire to make it bigger and better than ever. The committee and our 13th MEU families hope to see you all there.
We are sincerely grateful for your support and understanding and pray that you and your loved ones are staying safe in these difficult days !
We are sincerely grateful for your support and understanding,
Anaheim 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit Adoption Committee

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.
