What better way to kick off summer than with a little family fun? Ramona Futbol Club, along with Arch Health Partners, will be hosting a community fun 5K event to benefit Ramona youth soccer program on Saturday, June 22, in celebration of summer.

Silly summer outfits are encouraged for this event. So, put on a sundress, wear a crazy Hawaiian shirt and Bermuda shorts, and lace up those flip flops.
