    1. Les, we apologize for not getting to you sooner. We’re new to the blogging experience so we didn’t see this comment until now. Next time, we can better arrange carpool. Thank you for your support!

    1. Toni, wonderful! Visit our Peer Run Organizations page (on the menu bar), and look for LA County Peer Organizations; there are plenty of them in the area.

      I know Painted Brain (info below) is active in their community, but there are a few others. Good luck!

      Once SB 906 passes, we’ll start to implement the certification. It’s only a matter of time.
