#139 – Back to School with Old Town Mission
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Sedona Property Partners – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

We love the feeling of community that Sedona brings to its residents. Sedona is all about finding ways to help those in need. One big focus that Sedona has is helping children in need, from providing after school activities to feeding the hungry. The Old Town Mission has become a very popular organization throughout Sedona and the Verde Valley, helping the homeless and families hurting throughout our community.

Right now, the Old Town Mission is doing an event to help send children to school with all Picture3-300x243the supplies they need. You might think that sending your child to a public school is no big deal. All you need to do is drop them off, or put them on the bus, with some lunch money and a backpack full of school supplies. But many kids show up each year with no supplies. We understand that these are expensive and that many families can’t afford them, that’s why it is on our hearts to help The Old Town Mission give kids school supplies this year.

So, we urge you to join the fundraiser. The Old Town Mission is bringing together the community by putting together backpacks for children attending school this fall. On August 3rd, Old Town Mission, that is located in Cottonwood, will be giving out backpacks for kids of all ages that need a backpack for school. Not only that, but when you receive your bag, it will come fully loaded with everything the kids will need for school. Pens, pencils, scissors, markers, notebooks, and many more things will be stuffed inside of these bags for the children and youth to take with them.

The hardest part is to get enough generous people to donate bags for these kids in need. If you are able to donate some supplies, backpacks, or a few filled backpacks, please bring them to the Old Town Mission Monday through Friday from 9-4. Without the people in the Verde Valley contributing items for the children, this outreach would not be able to happen.

That is why we love living in Sedona. People are always feeling as though they are able enough to give to those that are not doing well. Helping others is one focus that the Verde Valley has never failed in doing.

If you are able to contribute to the Old Town Mission, or are in need of receiving a backpack for your child, contact the Old Town Mission’s website for more information.

#136 – 5K Summer Series
365 Reasons to Live in Sedona

Greetings from Sedona Property Partners – Broker/Owners of REMAX Sedona

Imagine radiant red rocks, fresh mountain air, gorgeous blue skies, adrenaline racing, and Madonna in your ear buds. Are you pumped? No? Ok, switch out Madonna for whoever sparks your inner flame! Now that we have set the scene, are you ready to participate in Sedona AZ Summer 5K Series?

Meeting at the Sedona Community Pool, runners will be able to run through both paved and dirt trails around Sedona, through the red rocks during the three different 5K runs. These runs are hosted by the Sedona Parks and Recreation and the Sedona Running Company.

The races started last month, May 29th. If you happened to run in this race, don’t miss out on the next one! Watch how you improve your time and are able to continue improving each race you run. This Thursday, June 27 from 6-7pm is the next race. You can either register ahead of time at the Sedona Running Company website or just show up early for the event. If you run for this race, don’t miss out on the next one, July 25th. Try running all of the races!

If you have ran any type of marathon, this is a good one to start at. It is a little over 3 miles long. You will get a water stop 1.5 miles into the race. This is a fun, community gathering that all Sedona residents love! As stated on the Sedona Running Company website, you get many things as you join in the 5K marathon- “Out of breath, sweaty, a dip in the pool, time with your neighbors, bulging calves, water, bragging rights, other duties as assigned…maybe even some awards”. This is an event for the whole family!

If you would like more information about the 5K Summer Series, visit their website. If you would like more information about moving to Sedona so you can be part of this community, contact us!
