On June 8 we held our second Baker Ranch 5K Run. It marked a change in direction but achieved even loftier goals in building community and raising awareness of Higher Ground Youth & Family Services, a nonprofit charitable organization that provides mentoring programs for youth and their families in at-risk communities in Anaheim and surrounding areas.
Being able to empathize means to be capable of identifying and understanding another person's feelings, without experiencing them for yourself at that particular moment. It is the ability to literally experience the world from another person's perspective; to walk in their shoes, to view life from their living conditions and to feel what it feels like to be that person.
You don’t want to miss a chance to be a part of a new neighborhood tradition!! It’s the 2nd year of the Baker Ranch 5K! However this year we have “flipped” the course in the opposite direction, making it a hilly, scenic, and challenging 5K course.
The beauty of Orange County is that we still have gorgeous weather, even in the Fall! Over 250+ residents attended to see the new pool, grab a hot dog and enjoy the water and sun. Kids of all ages enjoyed snow cones for a tasty treat that was appreciated during an 80-degree day. Beach music was blasted while kids swam and everyone hung out and socialized on the poolside non-slip deck. This day came, not without its own challenges, and Crummack Huseby helped to make it all happen.
Our first ever Baker Ranch 5K was incredible! On September 15, runners of all levels ran through four parks: Vista Swim Club, Borrego Trail, Oaks Tennis Park, and Promenade Park. We had over 100 participants who, along with our sponsors, helped us bring awareness to Higher Ground Youth & Family Services, a not-for-profit charitable organization based out of Yorba Linda.
Every year, no matter which SoCal city you live in, you’ve watched the news about your city or surrounding city is on high alert during fire season. That’s the bad side of living with 284 sunny days a year. But did you know how most fires are caused in Orange County?
Enjoy a meandering tour through the community parks, neighborhoods and walking trails! Cross over the Alton pedestrian bridge as you make your way to the finish line at Promenade Park, where you'll be greeted by the Fitness Expo, recover stations, DJ music and a Kids Fun Run!
The rising senior population is called a “silver tsunami” as the population growth of seniors is on the rise. This demographic is more active than ever and communities are not only adding amenities to lure them in, but also creating stand alone neighborhoods for the 55+ active senior who desires a more posh lifestyle in their golden years. Take a look at what this growing demographic is looking for in their new home.
I am a foster mom. I remember the first time I saw the numbers about foster care. The numbers showing how many kids are in foster care are staggering, but for me, these numbers have faces, they have a story and these stories are tough to hear.
