The Loyola Marymount University (LMU) Family of Schools will hold a 5K neighborhood run/walk and public school expo Saturday, May 31st.
The 5K is scheduled to take place throughout the Westchester neighborhood, starting at LMU at 8:30 a.m. There will also be an optional 1K on the LMU campus at 10 a.m. designed for children to run for fun with their parents.
All of the proceeds are to go directly to the LMU Family of Schools, which includes Westchester High School, Orville Wright Middle School, Cowan Avenue, Kentwood, Loyola Village, Paseo del Rey and Westport Heights elementary schools.
In addition to the 5K, the public school expo will be held on Hannon Field, on the LMU campus, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The expo is open to the public and is designed to be fun for the whole family.
There will be vendors and public school booths as well as bounce houses and other entertainment for children.
The expo attracts families of more than 6,000 students who attend the local public schools, the participants of the 5K, as well as elected officials. The 5K and expo are expected to bring together the local community in support of these public schools.
The cost to participate in the 5K is $28 for adults, $23 for children ages 12 and under and $15 for the children’s 1K. The expo is free and open to the public.
