City Year Los Angeles is an official charity partner of the 2015 ASICS LA Marathon.
Here’s why one AmeriCorps member is motivated to run:
Name: Brandon Bielagus
Title: Team Leader at 122nd Street Elementary School
Why he runs: Over the course of my service with City Year, I have developed newfound appreciation for the many opportunities I’ve been afforded in my lifetime. I was supported by a loving community, granted a quality education, and gifted with good health to live life adventurously. Previously, I took my running skills for granted, but these days I truly cherish my running abilities.
Why he runs for City Year: I decided to run the LA Marathon on behalf of City Year to combine my two passions – education and running. By recognizing my own physical ability and educational opportunities, I hope to empower others to recognize their gifts and take action by sharing them with others.
