Run for Her 5K Run & Friendship Walk

Sparks TeamOn Sunday, November 11, 2007 the Los Angeles Sparks teamed up with Cedars Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Institute to host the third annual, “Run for Her”, 5K Run and Friendship Walk. To date, this was the largest “Run for Her” event with over 2,500 participants and roughly $600,000 raised for Women’s Cancer Research Institute.

Exceeding our goal to raise $5,000, the Sparks raised $11,000 and won an award for their efforts in being one of the top 5 fundraisers for the event. The Sparks co-owners, Carla Christofferson and Kathy Goodman, along with General Manager, Penny Toler and various employees and dedicated fans of the Los Angeles Sparks were there to run & walk with the participants and show their support.Run for Her Award Ceremony

The SparKIDS performed two crowd pleasing routines while Carla, Kathy and Penny were on hand to help present the awards to the top male and female runners.

The Sparks fundraising efforts for this incredible cause will continue until the end of the year through the “Spark the Cure” ticket promotion. To find out more about how you can purchase season tickets today and help the Sparks end cancer as a threat to women call 877-44-SPARKS.
