NOTE: Our friend Damian Kevitt, is the survivor of a horrible hit and run in Griffith Park. His story, subsequent amputation and transformation into a hero of recovery turned something awful into an incredible mission to make the world a better place. It remains one of the most awesome things we’ve had the honor of being a small part of. We hope that you make time this Sunday, to participate as a cyclist, runner or walker. Go Damian!!
Finish the Ride, Run, Walk ‘n Roll
LISTEN!! Finish the Ride is happening…again! What was a single event to commemorate a terrible event has turned into a movement, for safe city streets and ending hit and run crimes. A movement to support walking, bike riding, running, skateboarding, and having fun without fear of becoming roadkill.
It starts at 7:30am in Hollywood with VIP speakers, including the LA DOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds, Councilman Busciano, Councilman O’Farrell and a very special guest you’ll want to see.
The Run, Ride and Walking events roll at 8 AM. From 6 easy miles all the way up to 50 miles, a 10K Run, 10K Walk and 10K Roll. Yes, EVERY form of active transportation is represented, skate-boarders, roller-blades, roller-skaters, even unicyclists. Full support with activities, water and rest stops, SAG wagon, etc.
The event is kid friendly and dog friendly. Please no cats or iguanas. 🙂
Everything finishes at The Autry Museum south lawn in Griffith Park with food, live music, dancing, BBQ, beer, ice cream, beer, yoga, free t-shirt, finishing medal (or ribbon, depending on the event), great goodie bag with free swag, raffle, silent auction, free stuff and good times.
Did you know that between last year’s event, awareness campaigns, legislation and a lot of work, we dropped hit and run crimes by 16%. It all started with a little bike ride a year ago.
Have a great time. Help make LA a safer place to live. What are you waiting for? REGISTER!
