Chase Your Dreams
5K & Day of play

Saturday, March 21, 2020


We invite participants of all ages to RUN, WALK, SKIP, JUMP, DANCE, PLAY, and have a great time at our event that honors Leroy Chase, Jr. (1945-2018) and his advocacy for physical well-being among the youth. The Chase Your Dreams 5K & Day of Play is held to celebrate LeRoy Chase, Jr. and his vision and leadership towards the Boys and Girls Club of San Fernando Valley. Since its inception in 1966, he has ensured that our community's young people have greater access to quality programs and services that enhance their lives and shape their futures. The Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley is the exclusive beneficiary of this event.

To date, the Club is one of the oldest not-for-profit full service youth agencies in Pacoima, operating out of a 30,000 square foot complex with a gymnasium, games room, multi-purpose room, art room, educational center/college and career center, teen room, outdoor track, administrative and counseling offices and other rooms designed to serve the social, recreational and educational needs of young people and their families.

Aztlan Athletics, the event organizing partner, is honored to be involved in helping to further champion Leroy Chase Jr.’s vision, and will produce another extraordinary event.
