Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation to Host Fundraiser Run on September 13

On Sunday, September 13, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) will partner with New Balance to host its 2015 5K & 10K Run and Kids Fun Run. Sponsored by the Honda Dealers of Southern California, the event will benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation, which seeks to enrich the community through initiatives in sports and recreation, education and literacy, and health and wellness.

The day will kick off with the 10K run at 7:30 a.m., followed by the 5K race at 9:00 and the Kids Fun Run at 10:30. The races will take runners through Downtown Los Angeles, including a scenic tour of Elysian Park, and will conclude with a cool-down lap around the Dodger Stadium warning track.

Runners will have the opportunity to meet a number of legendary Dodgers on race day, and participants can register to fundraise in support of the LADF. By bringing in at least $100 in support from friends and family members, runners become eligible for prizes including an LADF shirt and bag, an autographed baseball and jersey, and the chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch.

Registration will remain open until LADF reaches a cap of 5,000 5K runners, 1,000 10K runners, and 500 Kids Fun Run participants. Additionally, the first 2,000 5K and 10K registrants will receive a voucher for a free Dodgers ticket.
