The Day of the Dead is a holiday where the impermanence of life is celebrated with some of the most comforting things in life; friends, flowers, and food. At Centro, we love to celebrate this holiday because it allows us to remember our loved ones by doing what we do best, building community through tradition.
Bike rides, altars, races, and music have all been part of the celebration since 2009. This Year we're proud to announce our 9th Annual Day of the Dead 5K and festival taking place on Saturday, October 26th. Once again, we have partnered with the wonderful folks at the Brentwood Boy & Girls Club who continue to do an incredible job of providing after school activities for the Latin American community. Every year more and more club members get to participate in the race thanks to our “Sponsor a little runner” program where $30 can contribute to pay a member's entry fee. During the last five years we have had over 4500 runners and have been able to contribute over $112K to the Boys & Girls Club.
Our goal this year is to continue to grow the number of participants by providing a one of a kind race as well as the opportunity to learn something meaningful about the holiday itself. Please join us this year in making this event another success and to continue to raise awareness of the diversity of our community.
