Sheila Stride

The Sheila Stride is a 5K, 10K run/walk to benefit the Sheila R Veloz Breast Imaging Center. This non-profit event will be held 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30, with all proceeds going directly to the center.

The run/walk will begin in the 23600 block of Creekside Road, Valencia, travel north toward McBean, right on McBean then right onto the South Fork Trail.

The finish line will be on Magic Mountain Parkway near the start line.

Walk to Stop Diabetes
