2018 LA Marathon - BIG 5K

About This Campaign

Hey Bigs and Littles!

Join us for our 3rd Annual BIG 5k Run on March 17th, 2018 at Dodgers Stadium! Each year, over 100 participants from our programs get with their Littles to help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles (BBBSLA) and run/walk together for the 5K (3.1miles)! We train together, fundraise together, and have a good ole time, we hope you’ll join us for this year’s run.

Sign up as a Big/Little team today and your registration fee of $40 is on us.

Raise $150 or more by March 1, 2018 and receive a t-shirt!

We encourage a minimum goal of raising $300 or more as a Big/Little team!

THANK YOU for your support! We look forward to continuing the work of changing the lives of more children for the better, forever, with you.
See you at the finish line!

BBBSLA provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one
relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Mentoring truly changes the trajectory of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged youth in our communities. Our measured outcomes prove how mentoring empowers our Littles to see the potential inside themselves and to see beyond the present toward a future of possibility.  In 2015, 96% of our seniors graduated from high school and 94% of them are college bound! By supporting our team, you are supporting vulnerable children in our community and helping to underwrite our BBBSLA team of 60 runners (30 matches) for the LA Marathon 5K. BBBSLA is an official charity partner of the LA Marathon.
