Team Coco

Running/walking team will raise funds for local charities
on behalf of the Live Like Coco Foundation

The Live Like Coco Foundation, a Santa Cruz-based non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids grow up healthy and with opportunities to pursue their dreams, has announced the creation of Team Coco — a group of athletes who walk, run and fundraise together to improve the lives of all kids in our community.

Launching in January 2017, Team Coco has set a goal of raising $50,000 to benefit the Live Like Coco Foundation’s Birthday Books From Coco program and other non- profit organizations that support kids and families.

The team hosts a kickoff meeting on Tuesday January 10 at 6 p.m. at the Santa Cruz Running Company at 1664 Soquel Drive, Suite B in Santa Cruz. Registration is $100 and open to adults of all fitness levels interested in making a difference in Santa Cruz County. Kids aged 12 and over may participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Team Coco’s coach will create individual training programs for each participant, designed to get every participant across the finish line of a 5K, 10K, half or full marathon by the end of the season in June 2017. To reach its fundraising goal, Team Coco’s members will work together on a number of community events, including a yard sale, a spaghetti dinner, a fun run and more.

The LiveLikeCoco Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization established in 2016 in memory of 12-year-old Colette “Coco” Pavao Lazenby. For more information on the LiveLikeCoco Foundation and Team Coco please visit
