CALICO is delighted to participate again as a charitable partner of the 2014 Oakland Running Festival. Each year our growing team of runners has raised thousands of dollars to achieve justice and healing for abused children.
Since 1997, CALICO has helped over 9,000 abused toddlers, children, and adolescents as well as adults with developmental disabilities, most of whom were sexually abused or exploited and many of whom were physically hurt, neglected, or witnesses to homicide or severe domestic violence. CALICO brings together law enforcement officers, child welfare workers, prosecutors and other professionals to respond sensitively and effectively to allegations of child abuse, while skilled mental-health clinicians provide support to caregivers.
As a runner for Team CALICO, every $1,000 you and your teammates raise will provide a family in crisis with a comprehensive package of services including a quality forensic interview, multi-disciplinary team response, crisis intervention, follow up support and connections to community-based services.

Sign up now to support Oakland Food Policy Council! OFPC works to establish an equitable and sustainable food system. As a 21-seat volunteer council, we analyze the Oakland food system from production through consumption and waste management, and recommend changes to make a community food system a reality. The council coordinates between food system sectors; bringing underserved populations to the food policy table and recommending policies for a healthier, more prosperous city. The central purpose of OFPC is to identify and propose innovative solutions to improve local or state food systems, spurring local economic development and making food systems more environmentally sustainable and socially just. In its first year, the OFPC established itself as one of the most balanced food policy councils in the country. Our members have included groups that have traditionally been underrepresented on food policy councils and in the “food movement”, such as labor representatives and food manufacturing and processing entrepreneurs and community members living in neighborhoods affected by food insecurity.
For 75 years the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland have served tens of thousands of Oakland youth by operating full service Clubhouses for kids when they need them-after school and year round; and where they need them-in three flatland Oakland neighborhoods. The Clubs serve girls and boys, aged 6 to 17 years of age. The Clubhouses provide a safe place for the youth to learn, to grow and to become positive contributors to our community. None of this would be possible without the financial contributions and the volunteer support from the generous Oakland Community.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland take great pride in our history, our kids and our place in the civic fabric of Oakland. Become part of our 75 year history by partnering with us as a runner for TEAM BGC OF OAKLAND. Choose to run the marathon, a half marathon, a 5K or have your son or daughter run with the Clubs’ youth in the Oakland Running Festival’s Kid Fun Run.
