The Palisades Lutheran 2nd Annual 5K Charity Run and Walk will be held on Saturday, October 15, from 9 a.m. to noon.  The goal is to raise $20,000 for homeless and community charities. The student fee is $20 and $35 for others.  The race starts and finishes at the church on Sunset and goes through local residential streets.

There are two ways for a charity to win. The three charities with the most runners/walker listing them as the “Charity of Choice” will receive a share of the Oktoberfest proceeds:

First place will receive 20 percent of the proceeds; second place will receive 15 percent and third place will receive 10 percent.

Additionally, all runners, who enter a “Charity of Choice” recipient on his/her registration form will participate in a random drawing will receive five percent of the proceeds.

Local streets will be closed between 9 to 10:30 a.m. and the run includes a scenic turn on Almar Avenue, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Later in the day, the community is invited to the annual Oktoberfest in the Lutheran Church courtyard from 4 to 7 p.m. There will be live music, German food, a beer garden, dancing and games. For more information, visit: PLC. Org or call (310) 459-2358.
