Kids Korps USA, the nonprofit youth organization based out of San Diego, has been officially approved as a Charity Fundraising Group for the Rock N Roll  San Diego Marathon to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event, part of the Rock N Roll Marathon Series, will take place on June 2.

The Kids Korps F.I.T. Club Charity Team stands for “Fundraise, Interact, and Train.” This fun and exciting new program provides participants the opportunity to fundraise for the organization and its partner agencies, to interact with other members of the Charity Team, and train hard to complete this challenging race.

“We are on the road to taking Kids Korps to a whole new level in our community. We are cultivating leaders of tomorrow, while making a direct impact today.  Our participation in the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon will help us raise funds and awareness about Kids Korps and its critical role in our community as a volunteer service organization that provides the human resources to local agencies helping tackle the toughest issues in our community,” said Ilia Dickey, Kids Korps board president.

Kids Korps, now in its 18th year, engages youth and families in community service to the tune of 1 million service hours. Kids Korps volunteers assist over 350 nonprofit agencies behind the scenes, making a direct impact on the most important social issues facing communities today. Kids Korps is tackling hunger, supporting underserved youth and military families, as well as implementing environmental conservation and education efforts throughout the region.
