2019 LA Marathon – Running in Memory of Our Loved Ones

May 1, 2019

On the weekend of Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24, volunteers and runners alike gathered in support of the Widows, Orphans & Disable Firefighters Fund. More than 80 people participated in the Big 5K event on Saturday, while another 30 runners took part in the Skechers LA Marathon and Charity Challenge on Sunday, braving the grueling 13.1 and 26.2-mile courses.

Though the mornings were chilly, the spirits of all involved quickly warmed with the memories of the fallen members they represented during the races. This year was a great success due in large part to the works of our very own Marlene Casillas, Diane Vigil, along with Bill Bringas, Jennifer Corona, and the selfless army of volunteers that joined them. The event also couldn’t have been possible without the support of our fabulous sponsor—Claudia Field of Bemer, a division of Global Health Partners. Thank you to all who participated and we look forward to making next year an even bigger accomplishment in support of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the citizens of Los Angeles.
