An Event in the Heart of L.A.
Walk and Play L.A. is a family-friendly community event that celebrates and supports the health of children in Los Angeles, while uniting the robust Los Angeles sports community. The event will include a 3K walk, a family festival for all ages, and exclusive clinics hosted by professional athletes for youth participants ages 4-12. It will provide employees, faculty members, corporate partners, supporters and patient families a unique opportunity to walk and play together in solidarity in the heart of Los Angeles. CHLA anticipates hosting as many as 2,000 people. As representatives and advocates for child health---from children and their families to the medical heroes who work tirelessly to improve their lives— the Greater Los Angeles community will rally behind Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities
This event gives corporations an opportunity to partner with CHLA and raise awareness of their brand among families who care about the health of our community’s children. It also gives brands visibility with clinicians, physicians, nurse practitioners and research scientists who are leaders in their fields nationally and internationally.
All sponsorship funding directly supports the Helping Hands Fund, which ensures that all CHLA patients receive the critical, lifesaving care they need. More children receive care from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles than from any other hospital in the region. Approximately 67 percent of the children treated at CHLA annually are covered by government programs, which do not reimburse the hospital for the full cost of the specialized care they require at our hospital. Children’s Hospital works tirelessly with generous support from philanthropic partners to provide compassionate, lifesaving care for these children
