Run for Her: A Huge Success!

On November 16, 2008, The Los Angeles Sparks and 50 of our most dedicated fans and closest friends partnered with the Women's Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai in their 4th annual Run For Her event. The event was a gathering of people in an effort to raise funds to support ovarian cancer research.

The event was a huge success and Cedars-Sinai's most successful with over 2900 participants who raised over $695,000. The Sparks were out in full force as owner Kathy Goodman, Sparks President Kristin Bernert, Vice President and General Manager Penny Toler and Head Coach Michael Cooper all led the way. Sparky was on hand to keep the Sparks team smiling as some walked and some ran the 5K.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the event and we appreciate those who couldn't join us but participated in raising funds for this important cause.
