Children’s Hospital Los Angeles will hold its third annual Walk and Play L.A. presented by Disney on June 22 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park.
Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and his wife Kourtney will be honorary hosts for the family-friendly event, which includes a 3K walk, sports clinics with professional athletes and local sports teams, and live entertainment.
“Walk and Play L.A. is an exciting way for our community to unite and kick off the summer while positively impacting the health of children,” Children’s Hospital Los Angeles President and CEO Paul S. Viviano said. “The money raised will ensure our patients receive the lifesaving and critical care they need.”
The event kicks off at 7:30 a.m. with check-in and the family festival, which includes music and games. Turner and his wife Kourtney will join representatives from the Los Angeles Chargers, the L.A. Kings and the Ontario Fury in leading fun activities for kids ages 4-12. ABC7 Eyewitness News anchor Coleen Sullivan will serve as the morning’s master of ceremonies.
At 9:30 a.m., walkers will embark on a 3K course that circles around the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park, past the giant-but-friendly dinosaur at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. The walk will conclude at the family festival area, where Disney VoluntEARS will assist visitors at the Disney, ESPN Los Angeles and ABC7 interactive booths. There will also be live entertainment from Radio Disney performers, musical artist Camryn, DJ Dense of the Los Angeles Clippers, School of Rock and more. A designated area will be available for participants who would like to bring their own picnics to the event.
Registration is open to individuals and teams consisting of friends, families and organizations at walkandplayla.org. As an incentive for participants to meet and exceed their individual fundraising goals, prizes will be awarded at various dollar amount levels. Donors may choose to support any of 350 specialty programs and services at CHLA, or they may choose to provide general support to ensure that CHLA is able to provide critical, lifesaving care to patients.
Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is located at 3911 S. Figueroa St. For information, visit http://walkandplayla.org.
