Event Description


Loving One by One Ministries is holding its SAFARI 5K FUN RUN to benefit the staffing and equipping of our newly built NEW HOPE MEDICAL CENTRE in Uganda, East Africa.

Why run on the streets? When you can run in the gardens!

The South Coast Botanic Garden is a 87 acre garden in the Palos Verdes Hills has over 150,000 landscaped plants and trees from approximately 140 families, 700 genera, and 2,000 different species, including flowering fruit trees, Coast Redwoods, Ginkgos and Pittosporum. Its gardens include the Water-Wise Garden, Japanese Garden, English Rose Garden, Garden of the Senses, among others. A small lake and stream bed attract various birds such as ducks, geese, coots, and herons. Over 300 species of birds have been recorded at the gardens.
