Runners to raise funds for first responders at ‘Run to Remember’
Nearly a decade after its launch in Boston, the first annual “Run to Remember – Los Angeles” will be held on Sunday, Jan. 24 at The Grove.
Participants are sought for the event, and registration is available at www.RuntoRememberLA.org.
“The Grove is proud to host Run to Remember and pay tribute to the many first responders who died in service to our communities,” said Rick J. Caruso, founder and CEO of Caruso Affiliated, owner of The Grove. “We look forward to honoring them and their legacies by raising funds for a wide range of important causes.”
“Run to Remember” began in Boston in 2005 as a way to recognize the law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The event includes a half-marathon and five-mile race. More than 5,000 runners are expected, including teams of law enforcement officers from agencies throughout the U.S. The run begins at 7 a.m. on The Grove Drive, and will follow a route through Hollywood, including a detour into the Paramount Studios backlot. The event will conclude at 11 a.m. in Pan Pacific Park.
“Run to Remember-Los Angeles” will raise funding platform for Operation Progress Los Angeles, the CHP 11-99 Foundation and the LAFD Foundation.
