Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Event Description This is your excuse to visit Las Vegas in the Spring. The Las Vegas 5K is one of the most exciting destination races in the Southwest. Ryno Running has created 3 events to accommodate all levels of ability.
Walk For Charity The Las Vegas 5K is excited to team up with The Jump for Joy Foundation to deliver the "Cease To Be Obese Crusade" walk for charity. The Jump for Joy Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides youth and families with the resources to combat childhood obesity. The Jump for Joy Foundation will be putting on a 1 mile fun run/charity walk, comprised of different fitness stations that will challenge participants of all ages. Come one come all! Parents and Grandparents are encouraged to join their kids and spark up a friendly competition. 100% of the profits for the "Cease To Be Obese Crusade" will be donated to the Jump For Joy Foundation. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards a scholarship for a UNLV student doing active research in the Child Obesity field. If participants do not want to participate in fitness activities, they can just walk the course for charity. Stick around for more fun during or after the event for our mini health conference. Vendors, sponsors and organizations from our community will be out there. For more information on the Jump for Joy foundation visit them on the web at jumpforjoyfoundation.org..
