On April 24, 2015, cyclists and runners will set out from Los Angeles to kick off a coast-to-coast relay marathon, to raise awareness of modern day genocides and ask that all nations including the United States unite to PREVENT GENOCIDES BY RECOGNIZING PAST GENOCIDES, INCLUDING THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE. Be a part of this momentous event.
LA2DC is a cross country cycling and running event that pushes the participants’ physical limitations in an act of remembrance and tribute to all those communities that have suffered genocides
We believe that an extraordinary and newsworthy event has the power to shake the world into awareness.
In 2015 it will be the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, and yet genocides are still affecting countless lives and communities.
Some massacres have gained worldwide notoriety but many have been swept aside leaving survivors to suffer in silence.
