Healthy Choices for Moms, Kids, and Communities

Los Angeles, CA – Para Los Niños and Champions for Change invite you to join them for a 5K to support economic justice for all women, and address the need for greater open spaces and healthier lifestyles in the community. Moms Helping Moms 5K is on Saturday, May 11th at LA State Historic Park and welcomes all to run/walk/stroller/roll!

“We feel it is important for Para Los Niños to support the Moms Helping Moms 5K, because it speaks to what we represent as an organization as well as Champions for Change,” said Ani Tarpinian, Program Manager of Champions for Change at Para Los Niños. “A strong community is formed by supporting our parents and families and healthy activities like a 5K is a great step toward a healthier lifestyle.”

Educational resources on nutrition and sugar-sweetened beverage alternatives from Champions for Change will be available. The goal is for families and community members to learn about nutrition, the value it has on a child’s health, both physical and emotional, and its influence on the child’s ability to succeed.
