30th Anniversary Bay to Breakers Run
by Mignon O'Young

Date: 18 May 2003, Sunday Start Time: 8:00 am

Start training now! OWA members, friends and families will be participating as a group in this year's San Francisco Bay to Breakers, the race that was born in 1912 and has attracted more and more people each year. We'll have both a running group and a walking group. Have fun with your OWA friends! There will be water stops and first aid stations, and plenty of people to cheer us on.

Our sub-committee has yet to start brainstorming on how we can identify ourselves as a group yet walk comfortably without bumping into each other. The sub-committee will meet in March and those of you who signed up on the volunteer sign up lists will be contacted soon for the meeting.
