The National Latino Peace Officers Association San Gabriel Valley Chapter has been in existence for over 35 years. The SGV Chapter is historically known for their Annual Menudo Run, which takes place every August.
The Virtual Menudo Run begins at 6AM EST August 21, 2020 - August 24, 2020 7PM EST.
All results must be received by 7PM EST. Results for all will be available at 9PM EST.
This will be the 37th year but our very 1st Virtual Run due to COVID-19. In 2009, the Menudo Run was renamed to The Al Rivera Menudo Run, in memory of one of their long time members and past Presidents, Al Rivera. Al was very instrumental in the SGV Chapter and was very committed to the Menudo Run.
The SGV chapter has been very busy in sponsoring fundraising events to assist with the Scholarship Fund and many other events which give back to the community.
In 2019, the Chapter awarded over $12,000.00 in scholarships to first year college students. Thank you for your support of our organization.
For those of you who attended our Annual Al Rivera Menudo Run we are sure you remember Evelyn Tapia. She was a familiar face and long time runner. It is with a very heavy heart to report she passed away due to health complications. She was 83 years young and will be missed.
We felt it was appropriate to share this "Runner's Prayer" in her memory.
"Run by my side; live in my heartbeat;
give strength to my steps.
As the cold surrounds, as the wind pushes me,
I know you surround me.
As the sun warms me, as the rain cleanses me,
I know you are touching me, challenging me, loving me.
And so I give you this run.
Thank you for matching my stride.
