WalkUnitedLA,is the signature community event for the Los Angeles Rams and will continue to  power the movement to end poverty for our unhoused neighbors, students and working families.

“We are thrilled to have Andrew Whitworth, an incredible champion not only on the field but a  powerful leader for positive change in our communities, and Grammy-nominated Aloe Blacc,  an inspiring social activist that uses his art and platform to create change, join us on November  12th for a day of action, impact, and celebration to all who have made a difference for others,”  said Elise Buik, President, and CEO, United Way of Greater Los Angeles.

“Together, we’ve  navigated a pandemic, economic and racial inequality, natural disasters, and more to lift each  other up in difficult times and support the most vulnerable among us. As we look ahead to our  next 100 years, our success will be measured by whether we create a region where every  individual and family can not merely survive but thrive.” 

“The Rams look forward to continuing our partnership with United Way of Greater Los Angeles  through WalkUnitedLA as we deepen our commitment to fight for housing, education and equal  opportunity for all neighbors and communities in need,” said Kevin Demoff, COO, Los Angeles Rams. “It’s incredibly exciting to have both United Way’s Centennial and  the Super Bowl championship to celebrate this year, and together we will continue to do the  work, tackling key issues and forging the solutions necessary to make a stronger and more  vibrant Los Angeles for the next 100 years.”
