Galt, Calif. – The California FFA Foundation (“FFA”) is thrilled to announce that Molina Healthcare of California (“Molina”) will serve as the presenting sponsor of the highly-anticipated 5K for FFA event. The event, aimed at promoting health and wellness among alumni, supporters, and more than 100,000 California FFA members, will take place October 8-14, 2023.
Now in its third year, the 5K for FFA was initially conceived during the pandemic as a way to foster connection and community-building among FFA members, agricultural teachers, families, and alumni. While the event remains virtual and flexible to accommodate individual participants, it has grown to include 5Ks on school campuses, community-wide running events, and wellness fairs.
"We are thrilled to have Molina join us as the presenting sponsor of the 5K for FFA," stated California FFA Foundation Executive Director Matt Patton. "Their commitment to the health and well-being of individuals aligns perfectly with the goals of our event. We sincerely appreciate their support and enthusiasm, and we are excited to work together in making this year's 5K for FFA a tremendous success."
“Molina shares California FFA Foundation’s dedication to improving the lives of individuals across the state,” said Abbie Totten, plan president of Molina Healthcare of California. “We’re proud to partner with an organization focused on developing the next generation of leaders in agriculture while supporting health and wellness in our local communities.”
Leading up to the race, participants can expect a series of weekly challenges, engaging activities, and motivational content shared on social media platforms. The 5K for FFA is an incredible opportunity for individuals and communities across California to come together, prioritize their health, and support local FFA programs. Participants can choose their own 5K route and complete the race at their own pace and convenience, allowing for a flexible and inclusive experience.
