San Benito Gives 2018 Reach San Benito Foundation

Better Lives Through Giving. The goal of San Benito GIVES is to raise $100,000, provide a new platform of giving, and build a stronger network between nonprofit organizations, donors, and San Benito County residents.

Bike to School Day

For the past 27 years, during the second week in May, the Council of San Benito County Governments (COG) sponsors the annual Bike to School Day festivities.

Communities across the country celebrate Walk to School Day to give visibility to the importance of safer and improved streets, healthier habits, and less traffic — one community at a time.

*CONTACT your school for participation and time of event.

Bike to school day, ride a bike in san benito county

May is Bike Month and the CalBike team is already blown away by the first-time riders committing to try a new commute, as well as the scores of rides, parties, and other events organized by our local partners across the state.

Join in on the fun of celebrating biking by making this pledge: recruit one new rider to biking this month, even if only for a day.

 MOONLIGHT WALK ON THE DE ANZA TRAIL!!!!

 

Hosted by R.E.A.C.H. San Benito Parks Foundation & BenitoLink
Sat, April 28, 7:30pm

As the Moon appeared, the glow of sunset created a gorgeous effect! See other pictures posted on our FB page and website from happy walkers. It was cold, but wonderful THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CAME, HELPED AND VOLUNTEERED!

BenitoLink's Leslie David did a great job supporting the effort, and creating a bond between R.E.A.C.H. and BenitoLink, as partners in the parks, trails & paths promotion in San Benito County ! BenitoLink's hosting of Jim Ostdick's articles, "Walking San Benito", has increased possibilities for finding open spaces to recreate! R.E.A.C.H. is grateful for the partnership in this event.

San Juan Bautista Kite Festival

The San Juan Bautista Kite Festival, held on Saturday, April 21, 2018, created a wonderful atmosphere for joyful activity at the San Juan Soccer Field.  The audience was limited due to the half-dozen other activities around town, but the outcome showed great promise for next year, which Jeffery Richardson has committed to.  The pictures taken by Chris Perez show the light-hearted sense of wellbeing generated by this delightful activity, just watching a kite fly.

 

 

Kite building kits were available, and donations were accepted for the benefit of the San Juan Grammar School students going to Science Camp this year.
