To organize and sponsor athletic events and programs that promote community involvement, education, tolerance, and a healthy non-violent lifestyle, particularly among our city’s at risk youth.
Long Beach Neighborhood Foundation is a completely volunteer run non-profit. It is lead by community members who are invested in making a lasting difference in their neighborhood. The idea was to organize athletic events that would have a positive impact on the local community, in particular youth, and in turn reinvest all proceeds from those events back into programs serving at-risk youth in Long Beach. LBNF’s flagship event, the Wrigley River Run 5K and 10K and Kids’ Tadpole Trot gets rave reviews from runners and the community at large and has earned the distinction of being the premier 5/10K in Long Beach.
