Our Major Events
Gather to Give, March 2016
A joint fundraiser for Running Chicken and the Educators' Institute for Human Rights will be held on March 11, 2016 from 6-10pm at the Brick Yard in San Francisco. Tickets can be purchased here: http://gathertogive.mydagsite.com/ . There will be a wine tasting, silent auction, great appetizers and good company. The entire cost of the event was donated, so 100% of the proceeds will be split between the two benefitting organizations. More information about Gather to Give can be found here: Gather to Give.
Swim Against Malaria, April 2007 & 2008
American High School swimmers gathered pledges for the number of laps they would swim continuously in an hour. The funds went to combat malaria, via distribution of $5.00 nets, education and medication. Close to 75 team members participated each year and enjoyed the local radio station WILD 94.9 and a barbecue afterwards.
Turkey Trot, November 2006 & 2007
A jog-a-thon to raise money for AIDS orphans in Kisumu, Kenya. Put on by the Amnesty International Club at American High School in Fremont, CA. Twenty-five students participated and raised close to $1000.00, all of which went directly GlobalEyes (old name for Running Chicken).
