1 Attachment(s)

Los Angeles 2015 Hope, Steps & A Cure 5K Run and Walk, a fundraising and awareness event to benefit the AA&MDSIF, will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at Shoreline Village in Long Beach, CA. It will be a day of fun connecting with fellow patients and families.

The event will include:
  • Hope, Steps & A Cure Walk
  • 5K Run
  • Silent auction
  • Inspirational guest speakers
  • Moment of Remembrance
  • Art projects for kids
  • Music
  • National Marrow Donor Program signups
  • Lunch and refreshments
Marrowforums members are invited to register for the event and/or donate to the fundraiser via the Team Marrowforums page, and to help spread the word about this annual fundraiser. 100% of all donations through Team Marrowforums go directly to the AA&MDSIF.


We will walk or run along the scenic marina in Shoreline Village. Walkers can choose either the 1-mile or 2-mile route.

Onsite registration begins at 7:00am for the 5K Run and 8:15am for the Walk in front of the Wheel Fun Rentals (see map). The 5K Run starts at 8:00am. The program and Walk will begin at 9:30am.

The registration fee is $25 per person for the Walk, $30 for the 5K Run, or $40 for both. Virtual Walkers (supporters who won't be at the event) are the same price: $25. Kids 14 and under can register for the Walk for only $20.

Each Walker and Virtual Walker is encouraged to set a personal fundraising goal and invite friends and family members to sponsor you online.
