The 10th Annual Los Angeles Kings 5k Run benefiting American Heart Association will take place on Saturday, January 21, in Downtown Los Angeles on the streets surrounding STAPLES Center and L.A. LIVE.  In partnership with the Kings Care Foundation, a portion of the event’s proceeds will go to the American Heart Association and their Go Red For Women movement.  Former Kings forward/current radio broadcaster Daryl Evans will once again host this year’s race and participate in the event.

Check-in begins at 7 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m.  Pre-registration is available by logging onto www.LAKings.com/5k.  The cost is $40 and includes a ticket to a Kings game, an official race t-shirt and a race bib.

“We had more than 1,000 participants last year and I am really excited to be participating in this event once again,” said Evans.  “I always have a great time with our fans at this event, and teaming up with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign really helps bring awareness to a very important issue – heart health.”
