Participants are invited to stay after the run/walk to enjoy a day of fun for the whole family with free snacks, music, entertainment and games for all ages. Emceeing the program and activities for the Los Angeles Partnership Walk are Fox Sports West Reporter and philanthropist Aliya-Jasmine Sovani and actor Huse Madhavji (Saving Hope/CTV).
