We would like to share some important changes that will occur for the Marianne Talley Foundation in 2019. First, we have decided to discontinue the Marianne Talley Fun Run. I want to thank the thousands of participants, sponsors and volunteers who helped us raise more than $200,000 over the 25 year history of the event. This was not a decision made lightly, but only after reflection about the resources required to execute the event.
We are aware that a number of people have already pre-registered for the 2019 Fun Run, and everyone will be given the choice of a full refund or the opportunity to donate their registration fee to the Marianne Talley Foundation. The Foundation is in sound financial condition and will continue to serve its mission of providing scholarships to Arroyo Grande High School students.
Thank you again for your continued support for the Marianne Talley Foundation.
