Walk of Ages XV: Are You Ready?
Are you ready to have a great time walking or running to raise funds for the Los Angeles Jewish Home? In its fifteenth year, the Home's Walk of Ages is making a new start! We're moving the date from chilly December to temperate September. We can't guarantee the weather will be perfect on the 14th, but we're pretty confident it won't be 30 degrees! And our location has changed, too: the 5K (3.1 mile) race will take place in Woodley Park in Van Nuys, where we are looking forward to welcoming even more of the community to our annual event. Also new this year is a 1K Kids' Dash and children's entertainer Robb Zelonky, better known as Robbo.
Each year the Walk of Ages is attended by hundreds of Home supporters of all ages. There are families and friends of our residents, donors, employees and their friends and families, babies in carriages and dogs on leashes. Some run, some jog, some walk … or do their own special combination. The goal is simple: cross the finish line and have fun doing it!
Registration fees for individuals are $35 for adults (13-79), $18 for children (0-12), and free for super seniors (80+). Teams of 10 or more are encouraged to raise or donate $1,000 per team, in addition to individual registration fees. Pre-race registration is open until Friday, September 12th at 1:00 PM. After deadline, all participants must register at the event.
There will be lots of free food and great giveaway items. So lace up your running or walking shoes, sneakers or tennis shoes, and come on out and have a great time for a great cause! Our residents will really appreciate it!
