Event Details

Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon 2017

Mending Kids is returning for their second year as a participating charity organization of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and Big 5K. The team at Mending Kids is honored and very excited to be a part of the sixth largest marathon in the U.S. along with our fellow charitable nonprofits involved.

The 2017 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon runs from the “stadium to the sea” passing every major landmark in L.A. including Disney Hall, TCL Chinese Theatre, the Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and finishes near the Santa Monica Pier.

The Mending Kids Team is made up of dedicated and passionate runners that are not only crazy enough to run 26.2 miles but also fund raise in the process! Some of us here in the office think that running that far is absurd, but then again, many people think that traveling to remote, desolate locations to save children’s lives is! And obviously, we disagree. So, jump on board and help us save children’s lives by running in honor of Mending Kids. Every member of the Mending Kids Team is committed to fundraising to help us reach our $40,000 goal - which goes directly to saving children’s lives around the world and here in the U.S.!
