"JLLA" is eagerly preparing for its 10th year as a Participating Charity Partner with the LA Big 5K. This year's race kicks off Saturday, March 18, at 8:00 am at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The LA Big 5K is an exciting opportunity for JLLA members to raise funds and increase awareness for the organization's signature training programs and direct service projects with community partners such as Happy Trails, Harvest Home, Friends LA and United Friends of the Children. Proceeds raised at this year's LA Big 5K will help us improve access to resources for Los Angeles area transition-age foster youth and underserved students seeking higher education.
Over 25 JLLA members are expected to join as LA Big 5K participants and raise funds to support our community partners and programs. Junior League members have been fundraising for several months, with an ambitious goal of raising $30,000.
"Our organization, through its community partnerships and programs, empowers women to create change in Los Angeles," says JLLA President Joy C. Williams. "By supporting our members who are running the 5K you'll be helping us achieve our mission."
