Moskowitz Foundation donates $5000 to LASD Womens Running Team
By Larry Caballero
Irving I. Moskowitz Foundation Representative Sal Flores presented a $5000 check to Sheriff Lee Baca and 2011 Womens Running Team Coach and participants Feb. 15 at County of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Headquarters.
The 120-mile Baker-to-Las Vegas Challenge Cup Relay started in 1981 and draws runners from law enforcement agencies throughout the world. It is the largest law enforcement event of its kind.
Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department’s 30 runners hope to break the 1991 record of 15 hours, 35 minutes 23 seconds. Sheriff Baca thanked the Moskowitz Foundation for its generous donation and said, “This event encourages physical fitness and fosters camaraderie between everyone involved.”
