The fourth annual Race for the Ring is coming to Sacramento on July 14, 2012. This text messaged based treasure hunt on bike through downtown Sacramento directly benefits programs at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS). Teams of two will pedal, scoot and wheel their way through downtown Sacramento guided by text message clues in search of more than $10,000 in prizes. Each week leading up to the event, we will interview someone who is involved in the race to find out why they are racing for a reason.
Today's interview is with Lauren Razzano, Social Media Lead at The Sacramento Press. Lauren graduated from CSU Sacramento a year ago and has been working in her current position since August.
In her free time she enjoys exploring Sacramento, trying new restaurants, shopping, and hanging out with family and friends.
Racers will be racing around town in search of jewelry graciously donated by Rogers Jewelry Company. What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
My favorite piece of jewelry is my Tiffany & Co. charm bracelet that my boyfriend, Christopher, gave me for my birthday last year. I never leave home without wearing it!
What are you looking forward to the most about this year's event?
I am looking forward to the race day. Race for the Ring brings out my competitive side, and I am hoping we place this year!
What motivates you to be part of this cause?
Race for the Ring is so fun, and all the money benefits such a great organization, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services.
If you participated last year, what was your favorite thing about the race?
I did not participate last year because the race was the same day as my college graduation, but I did participate the year before and liked that I learned a lot more about Sacramento.
What is your role with Race for the Ring 2012 and/or Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services?
My role in Race for the Ring is a very excited participant!
What is one thing the public might not (but should) know about Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services?
Many people don’t realize how much SFBFS does for the Sacramento community. They offer more than just food services for the people of Sacramento, but also classes, education, clothing, and more.
Anything else you'd like to add about yourself or the event?
If you're debating registering, just do it! The race is so much fun, benefits a wonderful Sacramento organization, and you get to spend a nice Summer day biking around Sacramento. Look out for me on my mint green cruiser riding around Sacramento on July 14th!
