Take Part in the Beverly Hills Cheer Zone for the LA Marathon

You don’t have to run in the LA Marathon to be a part of the action.

The Concern Foundation, a nonprofit cancer research organization, is seeking volunteers for the Beverly Hills Cheer Zone to support runners as they pass mile 16 of the LA Marathon.

Show up at the corner of North Rodeo Drive and Little Santa Monica Boulevard from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. Shake pompoms, hand out water, enjoy music and cheer on the thousands of runners coming through Beverly Hills. 

The Concern Foundation suggests that volunteers park in the residential neighborhood north of Santa Monica Boulevard and walk to the Cheer Zone. The nonprofit is also encouraging the community to check out www.teamconcern.org to make a donation to help fight cancer.

Miles 16 and 17 of the LA Marathon go through Beverly Hills. Runners will head south on Doheny Drive out of West Hollywood, make a right at Burton Way into Beverly Hills, cross over to Little Santa Monica Boulevard, make a left to go south on Rodeo Drive and then take a right on Wilshire Boulevard, where they will go on to Century City.

The forecast calls for rain on Sunday, so be sure to dress accordingly!
