Tamarindo Talk

November 18, 2010

The nonprofit CEPIA, which works to help underprivileged children, will celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women Nov. 25 in the central plaza of Villarreal. The festivities begin at 8 a.m., with hundreds of children and teenagers expected to give presentations and speeches about the cause.

Tamarindo will host another major run, the Ruta La Paz 5K/10K, tomorrow starting at 3:30 p.m. The mission of this inaugural event is to unite 300 participants of all ages and skill levels in the healthy sport of running. Coinciding with the race will be an event at Nogui’s restaurant featuring a beach dash for younger kids, live music at sunset by Tercer Mono, beach volleyball, a bonfire and more.

All proceeds from the event, which is being put on by Newton Events of San José, will go to the La Paz Community School Scholarship Program. Participants may register for the run at the school, at Nogui’s and at Newton stores in San José.
