Thank you for your support!
Located on the property of Holy Cross parish Veronika’s Place has been providing food for 400 men, women and children with HIV/AIDS in the local community of Dandora. Named in memory of Veronika Lineberry Manzella donations to this fund provide people with the nutrition they need to receive the most benefit from their medications.
Through Race 4 Veronika’s Place, an official charity program of the Skechers Los Angeles Marathon, the ministry has been able to raise the necessary funds for the program. We are seeking runners and walkers with an interest in participating in more than a marathon. Races include 5K, relay marathon and full marathon. We are also seeking cheer squad and prayer sponsors.
