Veronika’s Place is a food distribution program that supports HIV/AIDS patients in the Dandora Holy Cross Community in Kenya, supported by St. Monica Holy Cross Africa Ministry [HCAM].
In partnership with the Los Angeles Marathon, we raise funds to feed over 500 people each month with basic provisions annually. These men, women, and children cannot survive their battle with HIV/AIDS, even with antiviral medications, if they do not have nourishing food.
Each year our team of runners and walkers participate in the Los Angeles Marathon 5k, Charity Half, and Full Marathon as team Race 4 Veronika’s Place, raising about $40k. So please put on your sneakers to run with us, or support us with a donation below.
This year’s LA Marathon will be held on March 19, 2023. The R4VP team is gearing up for this year’s fundraiser and invites you to join us at the following activities.
