We Run LA
on Monday, 03/12/2012 —

We Run LA was inaugurated on September 19th by 3 PAPS members. The purpose of this initiative was to allow the members to explore new areas of the city as well as meet other Portuguese and non-Portuguese Los Angelinos, this way promoting their integration in the American culture and more specifically in the Los Angeles Community.  

For almost 3 months, 10 different routes throughout West LA were chosen to accomplish the 90 minutes goal stipulated for each run. A total of 228 miles were achieved by 7 runners, who participated at least in one of the events. The last event took place on November 27th for a deserved Christmas’ break. We will be back in January with a different activity. The purpose is the same, but this time we will “Roll the Wheels”. Stay tuned for the We Bike LA.
