For more than five years, Seven Gables Real Estate has had the privilege of working alongside the Tustin Unified School District as a primary sponsor of the 27th annual Dinosaur Dash this November 5th. The Dinosaur Dash, a collective bike and running race, brings together the Tustin community in support of over 24,000 students within Tustin Unified School District (TUSD). As a company that views  its local focus to be one of its strongest assets, Seven GableDino Dash_Poster PRINTs Real Estate is honored to sponsor the Bike Tour this year. Focused specifically on aiding the regions in which Seven Gables agents serve, it’s natural for Seven Gables to maintain a high level of community involvement.


Seven Gables supports the Tustin Public Schools Foundation, which in turn serves 24,000 students with classroom grants and enrichment programs.  During the Dino Dash event, Seven Gables engages with over 10,000 visitors every year! We have a booth set-up annually featuring games, face-painting, custom balloon art and free goodies like fidget spinners, bubbles, frisbees, coloring books, crayons and more.


It’s an honor to support 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, said Vice President at Seven Gables, 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. The Bike Tour Sponsorship is dear to our hearts because our President (Mike Hickman) is an avid bicyclist and enjoys leading the starting line bright and early with the other Dino Dash riders!


To “embrace learning” is a core value that Seven Gables embodies as a business from the top down and nobody knows this better than President of Seven Gables, Mike Hickman.


“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.” said President of Seven Gables Mike Hickman.


The 50k Bike Tour meanders through the gorgeous Santiago Canyon and will have well-stocked rest stops along the way. For those seeking a more simple option, there is also a 5k course and a 15k ride. If biking isn’t something that you’re ready to dive into, there’s also a 2k, 5k, and 10k run that meets in a shared space at the Market Place in Tustin.


“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 Marketing Coordinator MaryBeth Highly. “Every year we rise early and come together as a team to set-up our booth and make it warm and magical for all our visitors. We even train and exercise months in advance to lead the Seven Gables Real Estate 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.”
