Hayden 5K Run, Family Walk and Roll
On Saturday, March 11, 2017 over 1,000 participants will descend upon Santa Teresita in Duarte to take part in the 9th Annual Hayden 5K Run, Family Walk & Roll. This fun-filled day, in support of Santa Teresita’s Hayden Child Care Center, promotes healthy living and family fun, drawing participants not only from the San Gabriel Valley but the greater Los Angeles area, as well.
Thank you to your support of our 2017 Hayden 5k!
The Hayden 5k was our usual March highlight here at Santa Teresita. This year, the excitement was even more elevated than usual, as we are celebrating Hayden’s 50th anniversary! We had racers of every age and with many different modes of transportation; some running, some walking, some pushing wheel chairs or strollers with happy passengers enjoying the race. The whole event deeply reflected Santa Teresita’s claim to be “at the service of the family for life.” After the race, winners from every age category were announced and given their respective ribbons and applause, after which the party commenced!
This was a real party- live music, dancing, and lots of fun and food for everyone! Game booths were popular, as well as the annual car show, which always features an impressive collection of all the old classic models. We had several different types of food from various cultures: the typical American hamburgers and hotdogs, delicious Filipino fried noodles with crispy spring rolls, and Mexican tacos y burritos.
What a race, and what a party! We’re already excited for next year.
BRING YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO RUN, WALK AND ROLL!

Child care services provide affordable and quality education for children aged 2 – 6 during the school year and 2-10 during summer months. Children who attend Hayden Child Care are strengthened in their faith and in their foundational skills of physical development, social and emotional skills, creativity and imagination, academics, and play! Hayden students also support intergenerational activities with the residents at Santa Teresita, which is also a non-profit organization with a mission to be “At the Service of the Family for Life.” Services for seniors include assisted living and skilled nursing care.
