Event Info:

AltaMed’s 3rd Annual 5K 'Run for Your Life!' event will host walkers and runners of all ages and skill levels to raise funds for AltaMed’s programs. AltaMed is proud to deliver access to the highest quality, comprehensive health and human services to medically underserved communities in Southern California.

    •Health care for women, including gynecology, family planning, health screenings, mammograms and a comprehensive prenatal care program

    •Health and social services for seniors
