Volunteering: A Way of Life for the Munas

By Zeena Gregg

Originally from Thousand Oaks, CA, the Muna family has resided in the Greens neighborhood in Rancho Bernardo for over 15 years. “We have great friends… and love being surrounded by the golf courses and [being] within walking distance of the Bernardo Winery and RB Inn,” said Ed Muna.

The couple have two kids, Michael (17), a senior, and Amanda (14), a freshman, both at RB High School. “Kelly and I really stress volunteering and giving back to the community and we couldn’t be more proud of our kids,” said Ed Muna. Michael is currently serving as the Senior class Vice President, he organized the school’s blood drive and volunteers for Relay for Life as well as Valley Elementary School. He also has an entrepreneurial spirit and recently started designing and selling tee shirts along with a friend. Amanda is involved with the RB Community Presbyterian church, the National Charity League, and has served on the student body as well. She is on the freshman soccer team at RBHS and also enjoys dancing.

The Muna family definitely practices what they preach as both Ed and Kelly volunteer and give back in many ways. Through the years, Ed has coached baseball, basketball and soccer and served on the little league board for several seasons. These days, Ed focuses his efforts on his community. “I serve on the Rancho Bernardo Community Council and chair the Rancho Bernardo Maintenance District,” said Ed. “I also serve on the RBHS Foundation, which helps raise money for various programs for the students.” Kelly is also involved with the Poway chapter of the National Charity League with Amanda. “Through this wonderful philanthropic organization, we have the opportunity to provide community service to many charities while volunteering side by side.

The couple actually met in sixth grade, when Ed had a secret crush on Kelly. They eventually started dating in high school and have been together ever since. As a family, they enjoy spending time together and planning their annual trips to Mammoth in the winter and different destinations in the summer. Another family tradition is the annual Coronado 4th of July run, which they all participate in. Ed is a regular at half-marathons and Kelly completed her first half-marathon last year.
