The LA84 Foundation is celebrating 25 years of service to the youth of Southern California.

Since it began operations in 1985, it has invested $189 million in sports programs serving more than two million youth in the eight Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Imperial, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Ventura.
