Supporting Hands for Hope 11th Annual Walk

Magic Jump Rentals is proud to be a constant supporter of the Hands for Hope annual walk for kids. The 5k walk will be held at North Hollywood Park off the corner of Magnolia and Tujunga. The annual walk is a constant reminder and effort for kid's healthy activities.

Here is a little more information about the walk from the Hands for Hope Website:

The citywide Annual 5K HopeWalk began in 2001 as a means of uniting the city of North Hollywood (No Ho Music & Arts District) and surrounding cities in Los Angeles County with a mission to increase health awareness. Hands for Hope noticed that children and their parents in the area were in need of healthier lifestyles, so they joined together with residents, merchants and other community organizations in the area for a citywide event that has attracted corporations such as Disney, Dole, California Credit Union, Wells Fargo, Adidas, Whole Foods Markets and METRO.

Due to the need and success of the 5K HopeWalk, Hands for Hope intensified its commitment to healthy families by adding the "Kid's Healthy Activity Fair" in 2006 to encourage youth and their parents to participate in fitness/sports activities in a way that is both fun and engaging. During the fair, kids will perform over 10 different fitnes and sports activities as well as healthy food tastings. By adding the Kids Healthy Activity Fair, H4H once again proves its dedication to healthy, sustainable lifestyles for youth and their families.

The day begins at N. Hollywood Park with a 5K walk leaving from the corner of Magnolia and Tujunga Aves. The walk ends back at N. Hollywood Park for the "Kid's Healthy Activities Fair" and "A Taste Of No Ho" from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
