New Leaf Joins Wharf to Wharf Team

Wharf to Wharf Race, Inc. is pleased to announce they have welcomed New Leaf Community Markets as this year’s Official Grocery Sponsor of the 46th Annual Wharf to Wharf Race.   On Sunday, July 22nd, the Wharf to Wharf race will host 16,000 participants on its iconic 6-mile route from the Santa Cruz Wharf to the Capitola Wharf, with New Leaf as a key partner in this long standing local tradition.

New Leaf Community Markets looks forward to continuing to deepen its support of the community that’s at the heart of its business. New Leaf has two locations in Santa Cruz, one in Capitola, and one in Half Moon Bay. The natural grocer is excited about opening another New Leaf Community Markets store in the new Aptos Village, located near the local running and hiking haven, the Forest of Nisene Marks.

Contributing to the health and wellness of the community of Santa Cruz County is a core value of both New Leaf and Wharf to Wharf.  New Leaf Community Markets is a natural grocer, focused on organic, responsibly sourced and sustainably raised, locally grown food. They have always donated 10% of their after-tax profits to local community programs and non-profits that support their mission to nourish and sustain the community. Likewise, Wharf to Wharf donates on average $250,000 to the youth of Santa Cruz County annually and has given over $5 million back to the youth of Santa Cruz County throughout the organization’s history.
