This weekend, 5x NBA Champion Kobe Bryant, joined the United Way of Greater Los Angeles for the 5th Annual HomeWalk to end homelessness, a 5k run and walk commencing in Exposition Park, in downtown Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Lakers super star was the event’s Honorary Chair and kicked off the event that featured approximately 10,000 participants.
Kobe is using his time during the NBA lockout wisely to bring awareness that there are more than 51,000 homeless men and women in Los Angeles County and nearly one-quarter of them are chronically homeless. Kobe has supported the United Way by helping them to reach more residents concerned about fighting homelessness, and his charity has done great work with homeless children.
