About Home Run For Kids

Brief Description

On Sunday, February 9, 2020 Upward Bound House will present the 8th Annual Home Run For Kids in the Brentwood community of West Los Angeles. This community event will include a 5k and a Kiddie K fun run for the little ones along with expo booths featuring UBH programs, partner organizations, activities for children and adults and great food.

The event expects to draw over 1,200 participants and is open to the entire community, with all proceeds benefiting Upward Bound House. This will be a morning of exercise, awareness, food, and fun.

The Home Run for Kids is a great opportunity for parents, kids, local businesses, schools and the community to come together to help solve family homelessness, a growing crisis across Los Angeles. Bring the whole family out for the morning! The race course is both stroller and dog friendly. Run or walk, enjoy the entertainment and expo.
