STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Lakers legend AJ Green visited the KCAL9 studios Friday to talk about LAUSD’s 5K Move It Challenge!
The Los Angeles Unified School District will host its second annual 5K ‘Move It’ Challenge and Health Festival on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. In partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers, this District fundraiser aims to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle among students, employees and community members, while raising important funding for the District’s Wellness Centers.
More than a dozen LAUSD Wellness Centers offer FREE health and wellness programs and services, along with primary prevention education and parent education in their local communities. Statistics show that 27 percent of L.A. Unified students remain uninsured and 44 percent rely on Medi-Cal, an indication of the urgent need for the centers.
The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with the walk/run starting at 9 a.m.
Registration is available at the event!
