Description

On August 20th we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Newton Street Run 4 Youth 5K/1K fun run.  Walkers welcomed it's all for a good cause.

Ricardo Lizarraga was a police officer in Newton Division.  He lost his life on Feruary 20, 2004 while servingand protecting our community.   Newton Street Memorial Ride Foundation was created in honor of his legacy.  All proceeds benefit the hundreds of youths that live in the Newton Community (Ricardo Lizarraga Elementary and LAPD Newton Youth Programs).

It is proven that in the hours after school bell rings juvenile crime triples.  Statistics show that kids who particiapte in after school activities have a better chance of staying out of trouble. 

Youth programs work!!!  

LAPD Newton Youth Programs are free of charge to the youths and their families.
