On September 21 at Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation will host their first 5K Run and Kids Fun Run. The course will begin outside center field and it will take participants around the Dodger Stadium property, complete with a cool-down run along the warning track.
The 5K Run, open to adults and children of all ages, will begin at 8:30 a.m. PT. Children who are 12-years-old or younger, can register for the Kids Fun Run, which will begin at 10:00 a.m. PT.
The first 1,000 fans to register for the run will receive a voucher redeemable for one reserve level game ticket that can be used for one of the following games: June 2, June 16, June 18, June 30, July 2, August 16, August 19 or August 21. The current cost to register for the 5K Run is $40 per person, and $25 per person for the Kids Fun Run.
Each entrant will receive a free t-shirt and Dodger medal, and awards will be given to the top performers in each male and female age category. Along with the event, is an opportunity to donate to the fundraiser, with the proceeds aiming to improve the overall health of children and families throughout Los Angeles, according to the event’s official website:
