4th ANNUAL ‘THANK YOU’ RUN Press Release



On Thanksgiving morning at the 4S Ranch Community Park, the 4th annual Thank You Run will take place. There is expected to be over 1,200 participants helping to raise money for the local non profit, Helen’s Closet and the 4S Ranch Community Foundation.

At last year’s run there were over 1,000 participants that rose over $16,000.

The Thank You Run was named after Helen Mok and started by local Realtors, Theresa and Ray Shay with Shay Realtors. Theresa Shay lost her mother Helen to ALS which led the couple to start the annual fundraiser. The run helps to keep Helen’s spirit alive and to continue on her nobel concept of helping others in need.

The Thank You Run supports two worthwhile causes, Helen’s Closet & the 4S Ranch-Del Sur Community Foundation.  Helen’s Closet provides comfort equipment to terminally ill ALS patients. The 4S Ranch-Del Sur Community Foundation supports local schools, the surrounding community and other priorities.

The Thank You Run consists of a 5K Run starting at 7:30am, a 10K Run starting at 7:45am and a Kids Fun Run starting at 9am for the kids 8 and under. The post race family festival will have fun for the entire family with the Karl Strauss beer garden and the Equinox laser tag arena.
