The third annual La Mascota Hospital 5K Run/Walk will take place on April 6, 2019 in Griffith Park. Flintridge Prep High School’s Athletic Council on Leadership is hosting the event to benefit La Mascota Hospital. La Mascota is the only pediatric cancer hospital in all of Nicaragua. In Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the world, 45% of the population lives below the poverty line. 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.
All proceeds from this event will go to A World of One's Own, a nonprofit dedicated to providing transportation and food baskets to families of La Mascota Hospital. A World of One's Own has helped reduce the percentage of families abandoning treatment by more than 40%.
For the last 10 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.
Online registration will be offered at a discounted rate of $30 until two weeks before the race. After March 22nd, race registration will be $35.
