Descriptions: The A Change of Pace Foundation is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization, established in 2007 after many years of conducting events as A Change of Pace Inc (est. 1987). Based in Davis, CA, the Foundations annual efforts include healthy family-oriented events, youth exercise programs (with specific focus on elementary school-age children), kids triathlons and camps, and community education. The Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors, of whom meet monthly. The Foundation relies on grants, donations, and special event income & sponsorships to fund our programs and events. We have more than twenty years of experience on the local, regional and national level in the running and multisport field. The Positive Energy Campaign, established in 2006, was designed to encourage positive exercise for kids through fun, fitness-oriented events. This Campaign now includes four high-profile events, including one of the largest kids triathlons in the country, the California Kids Triathlon. With less than 30% of tested K-12 students in California meeting the criteria to be in the Healthy Fitness Zone, we are striving to increase the number of kids we reach with our programs and events. Our events serve as a motivational tool for our after-school exercise programs. The A Change of Pace Foundation strives to encourage, educate and motivate kids to inspire life-long habits towards a healthy lifestyle. Keywords: Organizations , recreation

Descriptions: Camp Kesem UC Davis is a free week-long camp for children ages 6-16 whose parents have, had, or have passed away from cancer. Our Davis Chapter consists of around 70 student leaders who all work together to plan, fundraise, and train for camp! Together, we form an extremely strong community that seeks to support one another, and the campers we serve, during and outside of camp. During our camp campers participate in a range of activities including arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, athletics, drama, and various nighttime activities. Each night before bedtime the campers participate in cabin chats, an activity where they can share their stories and express their emotions with peers in similar family situations. We have also extended our age group to include teens 17-18 in our new Counselor-in-Training program to encourage them to seek out positive leadership experiences as they head towards college and beyond. The first Camp Kesem project was founded at Stanford University in 2000 as a project of Hillel at Stanford, a nonprofit serving Jewish students at the University. The project was developed by a group of student leaders who sought to create a magical summer camp experience for children in need. After assessing the needs of the community, the students found that children who have/had a parent with cancer comprised an under-served population who could benefit from a summer camp experience with peers who faced similar challenges.

It is scientifically supportable, not just a romantic utopian vision, and is relevant to all classes, all ideologies, and all nations of the world. The Green Party calls for a complete restructuring of social, cultural, and political life, especially in the developed countries. It seeks to broaden the ideological debate presented by the dominant political parties, who frame their arguments in terms of a linear capitalist system, to include a holistic systems approach to recourse allocation, waste reduction, and democratic principles. The Green Party stands in direct challenge to those who say there is no alternative to our current economic system. We believe if there is to be a future, it will have to be Green.
