‘Mad Dash’ for Maddi’s Closet

From Maddi’s Closet is looking forward to its 10th Annual “Mad Dash,” a competitive and non-competitive 5K run/walk to be held at La Serna High School on Saturday, April 11, 2015.

Everyone is welcome to join From Maddi’s Closet as they press on in the fight against childhood cancer. The event is one of two major fundraisers sponsored by Maddi’s Closet each year to help pay for programs and services in the support of patients and their families struggling with the challenges of this disease.

“Let’s give this event a complete make-over,” stated Donna Holmes, president and founder, as she met with the “Mad Dash” committee members early in October 2014. “The enthusiasm and support has been very gratifying and energizing. It’s going to be amazing!”

The theme for the 2015 5K run/walk is “The Year of the Super Hero,” honoring both the little heroes battling cancer and recognizing the special heroes that participate and provide financial support, making it possible to continue providing the wide range of programs and services for patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Hospital Orange County.

From Maddi’s Closet has continued to enhance services and expand the number of children receiving the benefits and services throughout the year.
