  • Miracle Miles for Kids (Spring): This 10k walk/run from Morro Rock to the Cayucos Pier is our largest event, drawing more than 2,000 participants. Your participation helps to meet critical needs of the over 1,800 children, youth and families served by FCNI annually.
  • Benefit for Kids (Summer): Experience exclusive Central Coast beverages, flavors and fare with a silent auction, all while helping to benefit children and families in your community.
  • Holiday Open House (Winter): Our SLO headquarters are transformed into a winter wonderland to create a special experience to celebrate the holidays for FCNI children and families.
