Team Narconon Runners Swell the Ranks of the Say No to Drugs Race Holiday Classic on Universal Studios Backlot
Date:12/9/2013

(PRWEB) December 09, 2013

Temperatures hovered close to freezing as 1,350 runners lined up in the Courthouse Square of Universal Studios Hollywood backlot, famously featured in the Back to the Future trilogy. When the starting signal was heard, volunteer runners began simultaneous 10K and 5K races on a course that would wind through world-renowned movie sets such as Bates Motel, ‘Psycho’ House, Jaws Lake, Little Mexico, New York Street, Whoville, and War of the Worlds, before finishing back in the Square. For these few hours on Sunday, December 8th, the focus of thousands of mostly young people was on delivering the message that life is better without drugs.

"Team Narconon" was almost 400 runners strong, composed of local youth, the youngest being six years old. Runners represented 50 Southern California cities such as Sylmar, Pacoima, Arleta, Van Nuys, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and Burbank. Narconon Drug Prevention & Education, Inc. awarded sponsorships to these young runners thanks to support from over 60 community businesses and individuals.

"This annual race is a great opportunity for kids to contribute by participating in a professional event with a strong drug-free message," said Sigal Adini, executive director of Narconon Drug Prevention & Education. "Parents and teachers expressed to us over and over how much fun their kids had. For some this was the first time they ever got to participate in such an event."

Officially, there were 473 runners in the 10K, 875 in the 5K race, and 1,022 runners in the 5K Fun Run/Walk. Add all the volunteers, family and community supporters and there were more than 3,000 people filling the town square in the chilly early Sunday morning. "Team Narconon" had 379 runners representing 6 high schools, LAPD volunteer groups, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc. One of the Team was Cristian Suarez from Arleta who placed second overal
