Part of United Way’s campaign to end poverty in L.A. County, HomeWalk is a 5K run/walk to raise public awareness and fund solutions to end homelessness, an extreme form of poverty. Over the last five years, 28,000 people have walked, raising $2.2M and helping move over 12,000 people off the streets and into housing. This year, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation will match every donation of $100 or more, driving expected record donations from the Walk.

For the second consecutive year, Kobe Bryant is Honorary Chair for HomeWalk, which will take place at Exposition Park in front of the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Psshah! Forgive my cynicism. That isn't helping. Unless they are looking for extras on The Fresh Prince.


Give a guy your sweatshirt, Kobe!

Not to sound distasteful, but the only 'homeless" people shown were the few people sleeping on the ground. Other than that, everyone else had smart phones and seemed pretty normally dressed, and were probably just following him cause he's Kobe. Well good on him anyways for doing this.

Are they homeless because they did not pass Kobe the ball? All kidding aside its nice to see some attention brought to homeless people. Nowadays it always seems to be diseases.
