Five community-minded real estate professionals were among the 1,200 individuals who ran through the streets of Pacific Palisades on Thanksgiving Day to raise funds and awareness to assist people who might not be able to do so themselves.
The participants from our Pacific Palisades office showed their gratitude and support by taking part in the third annual Banc of California Pacific Palisades Turkey Trot, a 5K/10K charity event. Proceeds from the race benefit the Hearts With Hope Foundation and the Los Angeles Food Bank.
“With more than 1,200 runners and walkers, the event was a huge community success,” said John Closson, Branch Manager and Regional Vice President.
“Proceeds generated will go a long way toward helping in the mission of Hearts with Hope, which instructs medical personnel in the treatment and care of children with congenital heart diseases, as well as providing financial, educational, and emotional support to their families; and the Food Bank, which mobilizes resources to fight hunger in our community and provides food to 320,500 people every month.”
In addition to John, office participants included REALTOR® – Sales Associates Jane Fujinaka, Teresa Akerblom, Sue Kohl, and Brett Duffy.
“Events like the Turkey Trot demonstrate how committed our agents and staff are to the communities they work and live in,” John said. “Coming out on Thanksgiving Day is a real testament to their level of support, and I was honored to join them.”
