Gayle Anderson was live in downtown Los Angeles with members of the Widows, Orphans, and Disabled Firemen’s Fund. As an official charity partner of the 2017 Skechers Performance L.A. Marathon, they have runners competing in the full marathon, the charity-relay race and the L.A. Big 5k. We can help our “L.A. Fire” team by sponsoring a member; by becoming a virtual runner; or by simply making a donation. All contributions benefit the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund and come directly to the charity, a 110-year old non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax I.D. #95-6205446.

Participants are dedicated to completing this incredible race and raising money for those in need to be able to afford basic living expenses, health insurance and even college tuition.
