The second annual Swift Family Run brought out so many of the Chapman community (and sun)! Congrats to everyone!

There are some t-shirts leftover, now just for $5! Order online at the Chapman Gear shop.

To help make this event a success, day-of volunteers are needed and appreciated! The Swift Family Run Team read the 2018-19 survey results and we hear you. We have volunteer needs on the day of the event that could work well for single and working parents and we can tell you now so you have time to schedule it. Everyone is welcome. Volunteers get a t-shirt!


THANK YOU to all of our corporate sponsors and in-kind donors. Please support them!
