New technology, improved equipment and the hard work of the Samran brothers, owners of Billu Farming, produce almonds and grapes near the Bonita District on Avenue 14 and Road 19.
The brothers have formed a non profit organization to promote family health, Samran said.
“Getting grandparents out exercising and the kids involved is how it started,” he said.
Their first event, the 5K Fruit Tree Walk Run, is this Saturday, Aug. 12, at Lions Town and Country Park. Race registration is $20 advance $25 day of event per participant with a $10 discount for those 10 and younger and 60 or older, he said. Plans are for the group to stage quarterly events.
Each participant will receive a complementary fruit tree of their choice, such as oranges, peaches, blueberries and boysenberries provided by a sponsor, Burchell Nursery.
Proceeds and donations from the race benefit Madera special-needs sports and recreation programs.
