Run/Walk for Veterans


Run/Walk for our Veterans

By Efren Martinez

Saturday morning our community comes together to support and run for our Veterans. The Modesto Memorial Classic run, walk and race in o May 26th, 2018. Proceeds in part benefit our Modesto Vet Center programs such as their recreational and social activities. This is a great way for all of us Americans to come out and show our love and personal support to our United States Veterans. As far as the races go, it’s one of my preferred when it comes to my racing dollars. The Modesto Memorial Classic offers 2 paved races, a 5K and a 1 mile. The race is at Tuolumne River park in Modesto and the course is covered mostly by shady trees with a beautiful river scenery. It also sports a free children’s fun run with your Modesto View DJ in fitness Efren j. Cash winning awards, raffles, Entertainment by The Quake DJ, a festival like atmosphere with vendors and informational booths; and if that wasn’t enough, each registered entry gets a pancake breakfast at the end of the run/walk. Still not convinced, well here’s the most important reason why you should run, walk or just simply attend The Modesto Memorial Classic. This family-friendly fitness event is a great way to show your support for our US Veterans this Memorial day weekend. Below are a few more details and the link to register for this weekend’s Modesto Memorial Classic.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
