The first ever La Mascota Hospital 5K Run/Walk will take place on March 11, 2017 in Griffith Park. The Flintridge Prep High School’s Athletic Council on Leadership is hosting the event to benefit La Mascota Hospital. La Mascota is the only children's cancer hospital in all of Nicaragua. Our goal is not only to raise funds for La Mascota, but also raise awareness about what is going on in the world around us.
45.2% of Nicaragua’s population lives below the poverty line, so all proceeds from the event will go to A World of One’s Own. A World of One’s Own is a nonprofit dedicated to providing transportation to and from the hospital to people all over Nicaragua who cannot afford to pay for transportation themselves.
For the last 20 years Prep has visited and spent time at La Mascota hospital. After her experience on “the Nicaragua Trip”, one of Prep’s alumna, Naomi Hatanaka founded A World of One’s Own. Seeing the hospital first hand and spending time with the children at La Mascota was what led us to plan and host this event.
