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.

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.

5. Bridget's Dream

Address: P.O. Box 162661
City: Sacramento State: CA Zip: 95816

Contact Person: Leah Albright-Byrd
Contact's Position: Executive Director/Founder
Phone: 9162353690

Descriptions: Bridget's Dream is a faith-based nonprofit organization built on Biblical principles and dedicated to providing practical services to victims, their families, and youth at-risk of exploitation. We believe in the sound integration of psychological and biblical principles. We recognize that we are in a war and our battle strategy must come from the King of kings. Although Sex Trafficking has, within the last few years, emerged as our Nation's "hot topic", we recognize that the pursuit, rescue, and restoration of prostituted persons is not a new concept. William Booth (founder of the Salvation Army) pioneered this cause in the 1800's. In General William Booth's war cry, known as the "New National Scheme for Deliverance of Unprotected Girls and the Rescue of the Fallen", he established general principles that guided the restoration work for individuals trapped in sexual exploitation. We believe that there is much to be learned from those that have gone before us. When the dust settles and excitement about this cause dissipates, when our arms grow weary and hearts overwhelmed, the dream will carry on because this is not just Bridget's dream or Leah's is God's Dream!!! As a partner of City of Refuge Sacramento, Bridget's Dream is committed to the ongoing development of collaborative partnerships with other organizations. We believe that a spirit of unity will enable our community to meet the multi-faceted needs of those we serve. There is greater strength in numbers and as we are witnessing a move of God that is revealing His passionate devotion to the destitute, we are seeing Him join together the hearts of those who are like-minded.

For the past 40 years, the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), one of the largest, non-profit, volunteer, sports organizations in the United States, has been putting on the AAU Junior Olympic Games in various cities on the East Coast. Athletes that have competed in past AAU games include sports legends like Payton Manning, Muhammad Ali, Deter Jeter, to name just a few. This year, from June 23rd to July 1st, 2007, UC Davis will host the second annual West Coast AAU Junior Olympic Games, and we need your help. We are expecting to have up to 2,500 young athletes, ages 8 to 18, from across the nation come to Davis and participate in the following sports: Jump Rope, Basketball, Baseball, Wrestling, and Diving. There will be many different volunteer opportunities throughout the games, ranging from helping with hospitality, to working at the different sporting events, to helping at our Athlete Village. Both individuals and groups are welcome, and all volunteers will receive a free shirt, good-bag and light snacks. For more information, please visit and click on Volunteering.
