We have been working with Walnut Avenue Family & Women’s Center (Walnut Avenue) since day 1. We are proud to bring awareness to women and family health through this organization.
Walnut Avenue is a 501 (c) 3 public benefit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for women, children, and families in Santa Cruz County for over 80 years. Strengths-based, supportive programs in childcare, youth development, parenting, domestic violence awareness & prevention, and advocacy are our primary focus. Many of the families participating in Walnut Avenue programs are from under-served populations due to poverty, early pregnancy, homelessness and/or domestic violence. Walnut Avenue seeks to improve the economic, physical, and emotional well-being of all the families we serve.
As of 2019, she.is.beautiful has donated over $100,000 to Walnut Avenue Family & Women’s Center and that is something we are proud of.
If you would like to additionally fundraise for Walnut Avenue through She.is.beautiful, please choose to be on “Walnut Avenue Family and Women’s Center Team” when registering for She.is.beautiful Santa Cruz. If you have already registered for the race but would like to be added to this team, please email email@example.com and we can assist you!
Are you coming from out of town and looking to stay Friday and/or Saturday night? Here are some ideas:
Depending on the size of your group and your favorite way to travel, we recommend looking into air bnb or vrbo for the best rates! Keep in mind, the race starts and finishes near/on West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz.
The Dream Inn is on the ocean and on the race course. The start line is less than a 1/4 mile from here and the finish line is 1/2 mile from here. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Wharf is also in walking distance. This is also the location of the SIBX:The Courage to Live Gala that we are hosting the night of the race.
Sand and Sea is located right next to Dream Inn so very walkable!
Fairfield by Marriott Santa Cruz is about 3 miles from the finish line and 2 miles from the start line. This hotel is located near great restaurants and wine tasting as well as trails and bike paths of Wilder Ranch!
Chaminade is a 10 minute drive to the start line (allow more time for race morning!). It’s such a beautiful property and has a 180 ocean view. This hotel often sits above the fog line and has a beautiful salt water pool and surrounded by hiking trails.
We do not recommend walking to the start line from Best Western Santa Cruz but is about a 5- 10 minute drive. Affordable option!
Stay tuned to hear our next in-person event.
For now, we’ll see you on Race Morning!
