Save the Date for the Walk of Ages XVI
The Los Angeles Jewish Home's sixteenth annual Walk of Ages will be held at Woodley Park on Sunday, November 15th, 2015. Members of the community will gather in the park for a morning of fitness, friends, and fun — all to support the seniors of the Jewish Home.
Exercise enthusiasts rejoice — this year, we've added a 10k! For those who have completed 5k races in the past, this is your chance to push yourself to new limits and take a crack at the brand new 6.2 mile course. Walk of Ages co-chair Stuart Lorch feels the 10k is an excellent addition to the popular event. "For the first time in 16 years, we are bringing a 10k race to the Walk of Ages. We want to make supporting the Home accessible to participants of all physical abilities. We are confident this new race will help to draw in passionate athletes who don't usually attend the shorter 5k races."
Registration fees for individuals are $36 for adults (13-79), $18 for children (0-12), and free for seniors (80+). Registration fees will be waived for participants who raise $100 or more by November 9th. All participants will receive a Walk t-shirt. Children, seniors, and the top three finishers in each age and gender division will receive a medallion.
Walkers and runners can now set up their own customizable individual and team fundraising pages and ask their family and friends to help them reach their fundraising goals using the convenient online donation feature. Top fundraisers will take home exciting prizes based on the amount of money they raise.
Break out your sneakers and join us on November 15th. Whether you choose to walk, run, fundraise, support, cheer, or volunteer, your participation will help to make a difference in lives of our community's seniors.
