LA Marathon Unveils Expanded Charity Program; Sixty Official Charities to Take Part in 2010 Race
Date:12/17/2009

s-based anti-violence, community-building non-profit. USC Football Coach Pete Carroll, who co-founded A Better L.A., said: "We are very impressed with the way in which the marathon is seeking to become a powerful force for good in the community. By working together, we can ensure that young people living in the inner-city have the opportunity to dream, work and play without fear."

Another new participant is Heal the Bay, which aims to keep Southern California coastal waters safe, healthy and clean. President Mark Gold pointed out that the new Stadium to the Sea course offers a powerful reminder of the connections between Los Angeles and the ocean that has drawn so many people here.

"With the finish line just a few short blocks away from the Santa Monica pier, I can't think of a better partner than the Los Angeles Marathon to support us in our mission to protect the Santa Monica Bay," Gold said. "We're excited to work with the organizers to help green the race and increase community environmental stewardship."

Marathon officials anticipate thousands of runners will be raising funds for educational, health and other philanthropic organizations such as Team World Vision, Students Run LA and ThinkCure! Race organizers have made it easy for all Marathon runners to sign-up on a charity team as part of the online registration process.

"The LA Marathon is one of the few big events that brings the community together," said Janet Clayton, President of ThinkCure!, a Southern California-based non-profit that raises funds for cancer research. "ThinkCure is also about bringing LA together by funding collaborative cancer research right here in our community, and that's why the marathon is an important vehicle for raising money for that research - we are all dedicated to running for the cure."
