2019 LA Marathon - BIG 5K

2019 LA Marathon - BIG 5K

About This Campaign

Hello Everyone!

Join us for our 4th Annual BIG 5k Run on March 23rd, 2019 at Dodgers Stadium! Each year, over 100 participants from our programs run/walk the LA5K and fundraise.

We train together, fundraise together, and we hope you’ll join us for this year’s run.

Here are a few ways you can support our mission!

1- You can create your own fundraising page here to run/walk the LA5K with us
2- You can support a team by donating to their page
3- You can become a 5K sponsor

We are looking to create 25 new matches with the funds raised through the LA5K. That means 25 children off our wait list and matched with a mentor.

To remove 25 children on our wait list, we will need to raise $50,000.00!

And with your support, we can make it happen!

Let’s go make a difference in someone’s life!

See you at the finish line!

We'll Get There

I signed up for BBBSLA because I'm curious about the logic and inter curiousity of kids. I'm inspired by their unwavering wonder, intricate imagination, simplistic honesty, and ability to ignite the silliest absurdities in any adult. Kate and I have been a duo for two/three months and...

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 2018, 96% of our seniors graduated from high school and 94% of them are college bound!
