Charity 5K

We are introducing a brand new dynamic to the symposium with Liferay's first charity 5K! It's simple -- you run or walk, and Liferay will donate $100 to World Impact for every person who crosses the finish line! You have the choice of which World Impact program to donate to: $100 to LA Youth Media Workshop, $100 to SF Job Readiness Program, or $50 to each of the LA and SF programs. What better way to get the week started than exercising for a great cause?

The 5K run/walk starts at 1:30pm at the Ferry Building Marketplace (walking distance from the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero) and takes you along scenic Embarcadero Drive towards AT&T Park. Sign-ups are now closed, but please come cheer all our run/walkers on at the Start/Finish line!
