2019 LA Marathon - BIG 5K
A team fundraising campaign for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles.
About This Campaign
Join us for our 4th Annual BIG 5k Run on March 23rd, 2019 at Dodgers Stadium! Each year, over 100 participants from our programs run/walk the LA5K and fundraise.
We train together, fundraise together, and we hope you’ll join us for this year’s run.
Here are a few ways you can support our mission!
1- You can create your own fundraising page here to run/walk the LA5K with us
2- You can support a team by donating to their page
3- You can become a 5K sponsor
We are looking to create 25 new matches with the funds raised through the LA5K. That means 25 children off our wait list and matched with a mentor.
To remove 25 children on our wait list, we will need to raise $50,000.00!
And with your support, we can make it happen!
Let’s go make a difference in someone’s life!
See you at the finish line!

I have had the most AWESOME privilege of being Mikey's Big Brother for the last 3 years! Mikey is bright, sweet, earnest and teaches me as much as I teach him. He's got an ever so curious mind, terrific sense of humor (ask him for a pirate joke), plus he's got some sweet dance moves AND...
I signed up for BBBSLA because I'm curious about the logic and inter curiousity of kids. I'm inspired by their unwavering wonder, intricate imagination, simplistic honesty, and ability to ignite the silliest absurdities in any adult. Kate and I have been a duo for two/three months and...
Christopher and I have been matched through Big Brother Little Brothers for a year and a half and it's been an incredible experience. He makes me laugh and opens me up to a world with unbridled enthusiasm. Similarly, through fun and activity, I am trying to prepare him for the teen wo...
Ivan and I were matched through BBBS in June of 2018. I wish I could express in words how rewarding it is to have him in my life and how much BBBS has done for us. I had no idea I would be matched with someone who is so thoughtful, caring and absolutely hilarious. We got to go to a...
Aylan and I first met at our match introduction on January 26, 2015. Since then, we have made running in the annual LA BIG 5K a special tradition for the two of us. The 9-year-old boy that I met back in 2015 has grown into an athletic, talented, and energetic teenager! We are excited to...
Londyn and her Big, Alison, have been matched for nearly a year and they have enjoyed going on new adventures together – from riding roller coasters at Six Flags Magic Mountain and climbing to the top of the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook to eating crazy desserts at the Ktown Night Marke...
Through Big Brothers Big Sisters, Christopher and I were matched about a year ago. It has been such a rewarding gift to get to spend time with this kid, helping him develop confidence and a civic mind, try new things, and have fun around LA. It's been just a beneficial to me as it is ha...
Hello! We are at it again - our 4th year running the LA5K! Stephanie and I are so excited to be participating this year - fundraising for this amazing organization and getting some exercise in. This year we have a special addition to our team, Baby Tina! Tina will be joining us on our r...
As you may be aware, our waitlist for Littles keeps growing and growing. In a perfect world, Littles would not have to wait to be matched with a Big. As staff for Big Brothers Big Sisters, we see how children are genuinely impacted by an adult who is willing to be a friend — that listen...
Isaac and I have been hanging out for less than a year but one thing we immediately found out we had in common is that we are both winners and like a challenge. For every $100 that is donated, Isaac or I will eat a donut within an hour before the race to give ourselves an extra challeng...
John and Mark have been matched for about 4 months now. The BBBSLA team did a great job of pairing us, as we are both very active outdoors (we shoot hoops about every outing together, have been on hikes to Griffith Park, and often like to toss around the football) and have enjoyed indo...
Adrian and I have been matched for 6 months now through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. We've been on some awesome outings such as trips to the the movies, the batting cages, and an LA Rams game. We both love sports and are always competing against each other (even thou...

Over six years ago, Big Brothers Big Sisters matched me with my "Little", Sammy. Since then, I have had the pleasure of watching her grow into a funny, empathetic, selfless young woman. We started out strangers and have become family. We are teaming up to run this 5K and raise funds...

Some notable racing icons have said, "If you're not first, you're last" that couldn't be further from our mantra. Here at Dream Team we say, "We're smiling, thriving and jiving. We're moving, cruising and grooving. Let loose, don't be a moose - come on, move your caboose!" Dream Team is...

Ayanna and Micki have been matched for 3 years. Somewhere in those three years they decided that 5Ks weren’t their “thing,” yet here we are. The cause they’re running (or let’s be real, walking) for is so great, they have both agreed to brave the paved outdoors for it. They would love i...
Eight months ago, Anthonie and I were placed in a quiet room with a foosball table to “get to know each other.” Fifteen minutes and three games later, we instantly connected. We found common interests in soccer, video games, and exploring the endless possibilities if we ever found a sec...
Chris and I are running a 5K to fundraise for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles! This will be the first time in my life that I will run faster than Chris and I can't wait to see his face when I cross the finish line first...
Maynor and I were matched back in 2013, and it's been quite the ride since then. Though I'm his Big, he's helped shaped my perspective as much as I've shaped his. We have both learned a lot. We've been brothers for quite sometime, and I've had the privilege of seeing him off to college....
Our team is about supporting and motivating each other to become the best human beings possible. My "Little" Jaylen and I want to also be an inspiration to others to keep pushing till you cross the finish line.
Chris and I got matched through BBBSLA back in February 2018! You know that saying "time flies when you're having fun?" Well needless to say my time with Chris already has been nothing short of amazing! I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be given the opportunity to be his 'Big...
Jon and I have been matched since June of 2018. Together we love playing soccer, going on hikes, and getting our sugar fix from the nearest 7-Eleven. Now, we're going to burn off some of those calories with our first 5K together. Hope you'll support us in helping the Big Brothers Big Si...

relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Mentoring truly changes the trajectory of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged youth in our communities. Our measured outcomes prove how mentoring empowers our Littles to see the potential inside themselves and to see beyond the present toward a future of possibility. In 2018, 96% of our seniors graduated from high school and 94% of them are college bound!
