Organizer

L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run Committee, Inc.

The L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run Committee (LACFRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote physical fitness, literacy, and cultural engagement through community-based events.

LACFRC is 100% volunteer-operated. 100% of net proceeds are reinvested in the local community. The annual L.A. Chinatown Firecracker 5/10K Run/Walk & Bike Ride is one of Southern California's premier Lunar New Year traditions and the LACFRC's signature fundraising event. Since its inception in 1979, the LACFRC has contributed over $600,000 to a variety of elementary schools and service organizations, including The 100 Mile Club, Alpine Recreation Center, Asian American Tutorial, Chinese Historical Society of Southern California, Chinatown Senior Citizens Service Center, and Friends of the Chinatown Library.

Through the Asian Pacific Community Fund (APCF), the L.A. Chinatown Firecracker Run Committee (LACFRC) Fund offers grant opportunity to all eligible 501(c)(3) organizations conducting programs for the underserved Asian and Pacific Islander population in Los Angeles and/or Orange Counties.

The LACFRC Fund, also known as the “Firecracker Fund,” utilizes grant monies to promote the overall health, lifestyles and well-being of its grantees. Funds are derived from the participant and sponsorship fees of the annual L.A. Chinatown 5/10K Run/Walk & Bike Ride event, celebrating the Lunar New Year.
