As a daughter of a Los Angeles City Firefighter, I am so grateful for the courageous men and women who sacrifice so much in order to protect and save the lives of others.
My first marathon is dedicated to all firefighters, the extraordinary heroes. Thank you for all you do.
"Helping our brave firefighters, especially after one is injured or killed in the line of duty, requires support from people like you. As an official charity partner of the 2021 ASICS LA Marathon, our runners compete in the full marathon, the charity challenge race and the L.A. Big 5k. You can help our “L.A. Fire” team meet its fundraising goal by sponsoring a member below (just click on their name to get started); by securing contributions on our behalf (just click “set up fundraiser" above); or by simply making a donation. All contributions benefit the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firefighter’s Fund and come directly to our charity, a 112-year old non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax I.D. #95-6205446. Our fantastic team members include LAFD firefighters, family members, volunteers and other supporters. Each is dedicated to running this incredible race, and raising money for those in need. With your kindness, our firefighter families will be able to afford basic living expenses, health insurance and even college tuition. Thank you for being a hero to a hero and giving back to those who sacrifice so much, yet rarely ask for anything in return."
