Healthy Lifestyle: Nutrition & Physical Well-Being

The Los Angeles Chinatown Firecracker Run Committee, Inc. (LACFRC) offers grant opportunities to all eligible 501(c)(3) organizations conducting programs for the underserved Asian and Pacific Islander population in Los Angeles and/or Orange County. The grant process is administered in coordination with the Asian Pacific Community Fund (APCF).

The LACFRC Fund, also known as the “Firecracker Fund,” provide grant monies to projects that promote overall health, lifestyles and well-being of its participants. Funds are derived from the participant and sponsorship fees of the annual Los Angeles Chinatown 5K/10K Run and Bike Ride events, celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year. The events in Chinatown highlight the rich culture and diversity in the City of Los Angeles. Proceeds also benefit local elementary schools and community service organizations that serve local youth, families and elderly residents.
