Walk to End Genocide to be held Sunday in West L.A.

April 13, 2013|By Jason Song

A charity walk to raise money and awareness for survivors of genocide around the world will take place Sunday in the Fairfax district.

The seventh annual Walk to End Genocide will start at Pan Pacific Park in the 7600 block of Beverly Boulevard. Events start at 9 a.m. and will end by 2 p.m. The walk is being sponsored by Jewish World Watch.

The walk is a 5K (just over 3 miles) around the park on paved surfaces. Registration fees are $12 for students and $20 for adults.

Money raised from the event goes toward helping survivors of genocide and mass atrocities rebuild their lives through various relief projects, which can include everything from education to medical aid. The people of the Sudan and Congo are among the beneficiaries. 

The walk will be followed by a Global Village fair that will include food and craft booths, music and performances by spoken-word artists.
