Our annual Tribute to Veterans and Military Families is fast-approaching! Mark your calendars for this fantastic event featuring music, food trucks, an ode to WWII veterans, and exhibitors offering wellness programs, military history, and veteran and military family resources.

In partnership with @onebicyclefound, a 3rd grade class at Chandler Elementary School in Pasadena hosted a Bike Rodeo to raise funds and awareness for students at two schools in Tanzania and Kenya who live in rural areas and are forced to walk for two hours to get to class.

This week, we saw people in our communities give life, opportunities, and well-deserve recognition. Read more in the newest edition of Keeping up with Kathryn: https://t.co/iClJAxv1RE

By gifting the students with bicycles, they can get to school quickly, safely, and consistently. ... See MoreSee Less
