- Wahoo’s Tacos, General Tire and Azunia Tequila to support the annual Children’s Support Run V benefitting the Rancho El Milagro orphanage
Fort Mill, S.C. – Nov. 11, 2011. General Tire, Wahoo’s Tacos and Azunia Tequila, along with some of their off-road friends, will champion the Baja Children’s Support Run V next Wednesday, Nov. 16 in Ensenada, Baja, Mexico. The focus of this year’s event is to install a multi-media center including new computers and desks for the children at the Rancho El Milagro facility in Ensenada. Additionally, the group will provide valuable food and daily supplies for the orphaned children and staff members at Rancho El Milagro (www.ranchomilagro.org).
The fifth annual Baja Children’s Support Run is held in conjunction with the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 and will kickoff at the Costco in Ensenada at 8:30 a.m. PST. The general public is invited to stop by the Costco (located at Carr. Transpeninsular La Paz 4179; Carlos Pacheco; Ensenada) from 8:30 -10:30 a.m. to purchase and donate much needed food and supplies for the orphanage which will be delivered to the orphanage later that day. Monetary donations will also be welcome.
Following the shopping trip, a designated group of volunteers will travel to Rancho El Milagro to deliver the food and supplies and help build-out the multi-media center which will enable kids to learn and explore the world in their race to discover all the possibilities that lie ahead for them.
“Wahoo’s has been a supporter of this event from its inception and we will continue to support this cause for years to come,” Wing Lam, CEO, Wahoo’s Tacos. “It is very important for me personally and for my brand to always give back to the community and the children at Rancho El Milagro need our support.”
“Azunia Tequila is proud to offer continued support to this great cause.” Jim Riley, CEO, Azunia Tequila. “The Baja 1000 is not always about racing, but about giving back to the community that supports the off-road racing year after year.”
“General Tire was involved in this cause last year for the first time and it was a very rewarding experience,” said Dana Zamalloa, manager of PR and communications, General Tire. “Every kid deserves the opportunity to have the tools needed for a fulfilling life and Team GT is proud to help provide these tools for the great kids at the Rancho El Milagro.”
