Falcon 5k fundraises for Boys & Girls Club
The fifth annual Faster Than a Falcon 5k Run is set to take place the second weekend in May to benefit the Mountain View Boys & Girls Club. The race course begins and ends at Clark Middle School and winds through the neighborhood, and organizers say 100 percent of the proceeds go towards the youth organization. Registration is free for elementary, middle and high school students, and $15 for adults registering prior to May 4. There are prizes for top finishers, and the event raised more than $12,000 for the Boys & Girls Club last year. Click here to register online.
