Need to raise some funds for your local nonprofit/charity? The Palisades Lutheran Church, located at 15905 Sunset, is offering residents a chance to help his/her charity, while exercising.
Registration is now open for the Palisades Lutheran 3rd Annual 5K Oktoberfest Charity Run and Walk that will be held on Saturday, October 14, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The goal is to raise $30,000 for a church AV Sound System – and for other runners to raise money for the charity of their choice.
The group participation award means that the three charities with the greatest number of runners and walkers listing them as “Charity of Choice” will receive a share of the 5K Oktoberfest Run proceeds.
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. If selected, the charity will receive five percent of the proceeds.
The student fee is $20; $30 for others if registration is completed by September 24. After that date the fee for nonstudents raises to $35. Participants will receive a T-shirt.
The race starts and finishes at the church, located on Sunset, and goes through residential streets.
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. click here.
