**************************
The LAX Coastal Education Foundation, in partnership with Loyola Marymount University, is pleased to announce that the Rock, Roll, & Run for Education will return to the LMU campus on Saturday, March 9, 2019.
 
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and the incredible efforts of our volunteers, we raised upwards of $60,000 for local schools in the 2017-18 school year. We hope to raise even more of this vital funding in 2019! In addition to that great fundraising haul, the Rock, Roll & Run for Education was recently voted Best Charity/Non Profit Event in the Hometown News!
