Opportunity Drawing

As in previous years, the Los Angeles Council of HI-USA will hold an Opporuntiy Drawing in conjunction with the ASICS LA Marathon events. The Grand Prize for the 2013 Opportunity Drawing was two 15-day Eurail Global Passes, courtesy of RailEurope (valued at over $2,200).

Additional prizes for the Opportunity Drawing included donations from Southwest Airlines, DIRECTV, ESCAPE Campervans, Geffen Playhouse, and various restaurants and museums. Over $13,000 in prizes!.

The Opportunity Drawing Works Like This


For every $10 you donate as part of the LA Marathon fundraising campaign, you receive one (1) entry in the drawing.

  • Donate online here
  • Donate by mail (checks may be made payable to Hostelling International):
    HI-USA LA Marathon Fundraiser
    1436 2nd Street.
    Santa Monica, CA 90401


Gather donations for HI-USA and not only do your donors get an entry to the Opportunity Drawing for every $10 they donate, but so do you! You can join Team Hostelling International for the LA Marathon or 5K (runners and walkers welcome) or fundraise without competing. Either way, you get an entry for every $10 donated on your behalf!
