Long Beach Turkey Trot
Waste Management and The Long Beach International City Bank Marathon & Half Marathon have teamed up to help runners transform lives by repurposing their old running shoes. In honor of the event’s 30th Anniversary on October 10 through 12, Waste Management will collect shoes from marathon runners in a reuse campaign to benefit the Long Beach Rescue Mission.
Justin Rudd’s nonprofit Community Action Team (CAT) will present their 4th annual free professional Mother’s Day Concert at Bay Shore Church. The professional musicians are with Christian Campos’s Horizon Music Group based in Los Angeles and are paid thanks to funds raised at CAT’s Long Beach Turkey Trot 5K/10K.
