Children participating in Kid’s Dash at Annual Haunted Housing Run.

Triad Properties, an affiliated nonprofit management company of the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura (HACSB) hosted their 3rd Annual Haunted Housing Run on Saturday, October 27, at Ventura State Beach. 150 people attended this community event which consisted of a 5k, 10k, and a free Kids Dash.

The Ventura Police K9 Unit and its members were the 2018 Grand Marshals – Officer Keith Therrien with K9 Yoschi and Officer Juan “JC” Rodriguez with K9 Rover, and kicked off the 5k/10k races. $500 of proceeds raised will be donated to the National Police Dog Foundation, directly benefiting K9’s Yoschi and Rover.
