GETTING ACTIVE FOR A CAUSE

On Saturday, May 12, Matrix Parent Network and Resource Center held its first annual Bocce Tournament at Marin Bocce Federation in San Rafael. Around 75 people attended,
raising over $11,000 to support Matrix, an organization that empowers families of children with special needs, helping them to understand and access the systems that serve them. Pictured are a bocce ball player in action and a ticket seller. -Photos courtesy of Matrix Parent Network

Aprroximately 300 people passed through the gates at San Jose Middle School on May 19 and 20 for the Marin Relay for Life event that reached its goal and surpassed
$80,000 thanks to sponsors and supporters. Funds raised are used in Marin County for programs helping people with cancer. James Cooper (pictured) was crowned the winner of the
costume contest, a part of the event where young men dressed in costumes help raise funds as they run around the track. -Photo courtesy of Relay for Life Marin
