Cocina Sin Fronteras, a nonprofit affiliate of the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura (HACSB), will host its fourth annual Haunted Housing Run/Walk, Saturday, Oct. 26, at San Buenaventura State Beach, 901 San Pedro St., Ventura. The Haunted Housing Run/Walk offers both a 5K and 10K with chip timing on a fast, flat oceanfront course along the Ventura Promenade. Races begin promptly at 8 a.m., followed by the free Kids Dash at 9 a.m. All proceeds from the event support the Housing Authority’s Scholarship Program that assists Housing Authority residents and Housing Choice Voucher program participants to pursue higher education.
Early registration is $35 for the 5K and $40 for the 10K. Kids dash is free. Prizes will be awarded for the top three overall male and female finishers in both the 5K and 10K. All 5K/10K race participants receive an event t-shirt, bib and specially designed participation medal; breakfast burritos and donut holes will be served after the race. The family-friendly event will have free face painting, a jolly jump and a photo booth for all to enjoy. Costumes are encouraged with prizes awarded for best adult and best children’s costume.
The HACSB Scholarship Program awards six scholarships a year: three at $2,000 for a four-year college/university and three at $1,000 for community college/technical school. Since its inception in 2015, a total of 20 scholarships have been awarded.
“We believe that education provides opportunity, access and choices and is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty, “said HACSB CEO Denise Wise. “100 percent of the proceeds benefit the scholarship program. Most of our previous scholarship recipients were the first in their family to attend college. It is our vision to provide a resource that will allow our youth the chance to maximize their potential and life contribution.”
