About This Activity

The Joseph Lopez Memorial 5K was started to memorialize a local fallen hero, but has grown to a annual event that donates 100 percent of its profits to the Wounded Warrior Project and Youth For Christ.

Joseph Lopez Pratti grew up in Rosamond California and elisted into the Marines in 2009. On October 14th, 2010, Lance Corporal Lopez-Pratti was Killed in action while serving his tour of duty in the Sangin Province of Afghanistan.

This event is a family fun loving event that promotes health, wellness and most importantly rememberance.
