For more than six years running, Seven Gables Real Estate has been a primary sponsor of the annual Dino Dash, a collective bike and running race that brings together the Tustin community in support of the Tustin Unified School District (TUSD). This year, just as in years past, Seven Gables is honored to sponsor the Bike Tour. Building and serving our local community is one of Seven Gables’ top priorities so it’s only natural for our company to be highly involved in this event each year.
The Dino Dash primarily supports the Tustin Public Schools Foundation, which serves over 24,000 students, raising funds for classroom grants and enrichment programs. During the event, Seven Gables will host a booth featuring games, face painting, custom balloon art and free goodies like fidget spinners, bubbles, frisbees, coloring books, crayons and much more. This allows us to connect with over 10,000 visitors each year! One of our favorites perks about this fun event.
“It’s an honor to support the Tustin Public Schools Foundation because it provides incredible resources that support the local schools to excel and provide excellence to the students in the district,” says Seven Gables’ Vice President, Lisa Greubel. “We love having our booth so that we can connect with the community and see so many families who have been our clients for decades.”
Mike Hickman, President of Seven Gables, has a personal connection to the community and the cause. “I hold a special place in my heart for the schools of Tustin, growing up in Tustin and attending Tustin schools all the way up to college. We are passionate about the schools, the incredible opportunity the Tustin Unified School District provides to its students and we embrace supporting the community which in turn, allows us the opportunity to be of service.”
The 50k Bike Tour meanders through Santiago Canyon with well-stocked rest stops along the way. For those seeking something more mellow, there is also a 5k course and a 15k ride. And if walking or jogging is more your style, then join in on the a 2k, 5k, and 10k run/walk that begins in front of Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Tustin Marketplace.
“At Seven Gables, our schools and students in our communities are important to us and we are honored to support them through our sponsorship and participation each year at the Dino Dash events,” said Seven Gables’ Creative Director, Marybeth Highley. “Every year we rise early and come together as a team to set-up our booth and make it warm and magical for all of our visitors. We even train and exercise months in advance to lead the Seven Gables Bike Tour or to participate in the 2K, 5K and 10K runs. Our agents and staff are always excited and eager to volunteer their time and energy to make this a fun-spirited family event for everyone who visits and interacts with us at Dino Dash.”
