The Kids 4 Kids 5K Run / Walk takes place this Sunday morning, benefiting cancer research but bringing some major street closures to South Park. Most streets between Figueroa, Olympic, Grand and 12th will be closed 8 to 11am.

The event benefits the Children's Cancer Research Fund.

Figueroa will be closed between Pico and Olympic from 6am to noon. Closed between 8am and 11am are Olympic between Figueroa and Hope, 11th street between Figueroa and Grand, 12th street between Figueroa and Flower, Flower between Olympic and 12th, Grand between 11th and 12th and Hope between Olympic and 12th.

Sunday is also the day of Fiesta Broadway, which will have a number of streets closed in the Civic Center.

That closure will impact far fewer residential buildings, however. Located inside the closure area or opening onto closed streets are 717 Olympic, Met Lofts, Flower Street Lofts, Elleven, Luma, Evo and several affordable housing buildings. While the South Group structure may be able to get out via 12th, it's unclear what provisions will be made for the other structures.
