** Chips Contribute Energy and Resources to Sacramento **

The members of the Buffalo Chips Running Club consider ourselves active participants in the local running community and the overall Sacramento metropolitan area through our contributions of energy and resources to promote a healthy lifestyle and positive changes in the lives of its vibrant population. Each year, we dedicate a portion of the proceeds collected from our membership dues, race revenue, and outside donations to promote activities and organizations that contribute to the well-being of our neighbors.

2017 has been a good year for us, and we have had the opportunity to make monetary donations to the following organizations:

  • Buffalo Chips Youth Program = $5,200
  • American River Parkway Foundation = $1,725*
  • Women Escaping a Violent Environment = $225*
  • Woodland High School Cross-Country = $250

*This is in addition to the $2,100 for the American River Parkway Foundation and the $850 to the Women Escaping A Violent Environment organization that we collected from the generous participants of our “Fourth Of July 5-Mile Race”.

Outside of our financial support, the members of our club volunteered to maintain a one-mile section of the American River Parkway Trail.

As we welcome in a new year, our Buffalo Chips Running Club members will continue to hit the streets, attack the trails, and do our best to be positive contributors to our greater Sacramento neighborhood!
