On Sunday, April 13, 2014, the 2nd Annual Heart of the City 5k drew over 700 walkers, runners, and volunteers to the heart of Los Angeles to support an essential community resource: California Hospital Medical Center (CHMC). Registration fees were: $40 for adults; $25 for children 12 & under; a t-shirt is included with each registration. Fundraising incentives and prizes are available, and we have easy-to-use tools to help you raise pledges to support CHMC. #LAHeart5K
