Operation Courage Is Beautiful (OCIB) is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the first-ever Operation Courage 5K and Kids Fun Run. OCIB sends care packages to women on deployment in the military, with high-quality makeup, toiletries, women’s magazines, books, and well wishes. The care packages are a welcome bright spot during deployment. “It’s so nice to receive a package that I feel is curated specifically for women and our needs,” shared A1C B., Krislyn.

The Fun Run and 5K will be held Saturday, March 16 at 9 a.m. at Kit Carson Park. Proceeds from the event will provide shipping and supplies for care packages. “Our goal is to raise $20,000 to fulfill our growing demand for care packages during this upcoming year,” said OCIB Founder and President Cindy Chan-Ley. “San Diegans have been such amazing supporters in the past, and we invite everyone including sponsors to sign on to help us reach this goal.”
