Run for fine arts
Join the El Dorado County Office of Education in the first fundraiser run to benefit the Sugarloaf Station Foundation on March 29.
Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp is supported by the Sugarloaf Station Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation that provides partial scholarships for campers. Runners will enjoy a part-paved, part-dirt, out and back course over what was once the historic Southern Pacific Railway line. The event will consist of three course lengths: a 5K run/walk, a 10K, and a 10-mile run on the Eastern section of the scenic El Dorado Trail beginning at the Jacquier Road trailhead. The run will be chip timed by J & J Sports Productions.
Registration is open at jandjsportsproductions.com/events/sugarloaf-stampede.
Four sponsorship levels are available: Platinum ($1,000), Gold ($750), Silver ($500) and Bronze ($250). Parties interested in supporting Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp may donate by check or via the Sugarloaf Station Foundation website at sugarloafstationfoundation.org. Sponsors of $250 or more will have their names printed on race T-shirts and promotional materials.
Now in its 51st year, Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp has been bringing a unique camp experience to the students of El Dorado County for a half century. Sugarloaf provides two, week-long overnight camps where students are given the opportunity to expand their fine arts skills and to experiment with new ones. Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp takes place at the beautiful Sly Park Environmental Education Center in Pollock Pines, California, and is administered by the El Dorado County Office of Education. Camp staff includes many El Dorado County teachers and Sugarloaf alumni. Campers must have completed fifth grade and not yet completed 12th grade by July of the year of camp.
