Every Mile Will Be Worth Your While

Okay, yes, we just quoted a Disney song from Hercules. But in our defense, we plan to include that song (and more) in our playlist for this awesome event!

Every youth in the Friends of the Children - Los Angeles (Friends LA) program receives a long term, salaried, professional mentor from kindergarten to high school graduation - a 12+ year commitment, no matter what. This summer, Friends LA will be honoring the 12+ year commitment at Steps for Change, our first ever Virtual Walk/Run fundraising event. We hope Steps for Change will inspire you to get up and get active while giving back!

On Saturday, July 17th, we are challenging participants to set their own course and track their activity throughout the day to reach at least 12 KM (aka 7.5 miles). Whether its walking, running, biking, or gallivanting across town, we want our community to get off the screen and get on the streets! Participants will also enjoy prizes, a free t-shirt, a curated playlist, and suggested routes for the big day. Funds raised from this event will support our mission to positively impact the lives of children affected by foster care through the gift of a Friend.

Registration opens May 17th. Follow us on social media for updates!
