The Presidio 10

San Francisco- April 1, 2007

On April 1, 2007 the Presidio 10 run returned to San Francisco in force. Over 2000 runners participated in the 10K or the optional 10 Mile run which had one of the most picturesque courses around. Starting at Chrissy Field, winding through the presidio and then across one the great wonders of the world, the Golden Gate Bridge, runners were challenged, inspired and emotional. At the end of the run, runners were treated to a host of activities from massages, to pancakes, to a performance by the band Slackstring in a small town that was erected on Chrissy Field for the day. The weather could not have been better and the turnout was amazing.

Proceeds from the Presidio 10 run went to the Ashlyn Dyer Foundation as well as the Guardsmen.


Letter From the Presidio 10 Organizers to all Runners

Dear Runner,

Congratulations on your successful completion of the Nollenberger Capital Partners Presidio 10, benefiting The Guardsmen and The Ashlyn Dyer Foundation for Neurological Research and Support. It was over 60 years ago that local businessmen of San Francisco felt inspired to make a difference for the youth in the community of San Francisco, and with great dedication, founded The Guardsmen. Nollenberger Capital Partners is a proud sponsor of the Presidio 10 and would like to thank you for all your efforts and donations which go to help benefit these two charities, and celebrate the memory of Ashlyn Dyer. The spirit of this athletic endeavor is one of celebration: celebration in living, celebration in giving to those in need, celebration in family and community, and the celebration of daring to take on challenges that inspire to make a difference.

It was one year ago that Ashlyn Dyer was training for the Los Angeles Marathon. While out on her morning training run in the beautiful and scenic Presidio of San Francisco, Ashlyn was run down by a hit and run driver. Ashlyn became another victim of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). With the strength of Ashlyn’s inspiration, in memory of her spirit, and the desire to make a difference, the Ashlyn Dyer Foundation for Neurological Research and Support was founded. The purpose of The Ashlyn Dyer Foundation is to raise money and awareness for what is the #1 cause of death for those under age 45. TBI is known as the ‘silent epidemic’. Through dedication, commitment, and determination, that tag will be replaced with awareness and funding that will have a profound affect on research, medical support, technological progress and care for the sufferers of TBI.

Thank you for being a part of the celebration of the Nollenberger Capital Partners Presidio 10, benefiting The Guardsmen and The Ashlyn Dyer Foundation. Your accomplishment is an inspiration and motivation that will keep this event coming back year after year. We look forward to seeing you again next year and in a dedicated fashion, increasing funding and awareness for two charities that are truly dedicated to making a difference.

“Good times, good people, perseverance and sacrifice”~ Ashlyn Dyer
