September 11, 2022 was very special. We held El Grito 5K Family Run/Walk for the first time since the start of the pandemic. We were blessed with a lot of rain and got soaked. Hundreds of runners came out to enjoy Zumba, dance to tamborazo, tamales and jarritos! We are so thankful for all the volunteers and sponsors who helped make this race happen!

Following the race, our organization participated in the annual Mexican Independence Day Parade. We had a couple of floats! Matt DeMateo, our executive director, was honored to be a Grand Marshal. Centers was recognized for the work done during the pandemic through the food pantry.
