APEX Cares Infused Volunteer Spirit at the 36th Annual L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run
APEX Cares infused our first 2014 volunteer spirit at the 36th Annual L.A. Chinatown Firecracker 5K/10K/Kiddie Run on February 23rd to embrace physical fitness and cultural awareness. Over a dozen APEX volunteers showed up early Sunday morning to help set up the Kiddie Run Registration section by putting up the banners, organizing the t-shirt sizes, filling in the goody bags, and checking in kid runners. There were over 5,000 runners this year, including Apex board members. At the starting point, seeing excited runners and a few thousand firecrackers explode with loud popping noises to welcome in the Year of Horse set the stage for a fun and festive event. The Lunar New year celebration lived on throughout the day and night, followed by performances, entertainment, food and wine at the historical district.
