Youths raising funds for Children's Hospital

Kyle and Kevin McCollum, ages 13 and 10, are hoping to raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. They’ve registered to participate in the hospital’s 5K walk and run to be held April 30 from Griffith Park to Sunset Boulevard. The event celebrates the opening of a new hospital building.

The boys, from La Crescenta, are the sons of Tom and Claudia McCollum.

“I’m excited that I’m going to be raising money for the new hospital [building] so there’s more room for kids that need help,” Kyle said. Claudia is a registered nurse currently working in radiology at the hospital.

The family would like to raise up to $1,000 for the hospital, allowing each of them to participate in the run. The run costs $35 to register and another $200 of raised funds to participate in the block party after the run. The family has been reaching out to friends and family. One hundred percent of raised funds will directly support the hospital. To donate, contact Claudia McCollum at
