We're bringing you Mychal's Christmas in July! With the world that we are living in right now, we're sure that everyone could use some holiday cheer ASAP.
No matter how you get your cardio in, land or water, wear your best holiday gear and snap a photo as you go! This is a completely FREE AND VIRTUAL 5K event so you can do this within the comfort of your own home via treadmill, out at your local park, or even in the surf.
The beauty of this event is that we are spreading cheer together and safely. Just download and print your virtual bib, and use the hashtag #spreadcheertogether2020 when posting your photos on social media. When you do this, we will give you a shoutout on our social media, and you'll be entered into a raffle to win a basket of goodies from Mykie's or Mychal's Prints!

Mychal's opened its doors in 2002 by the current executive director, who was the parent of Mychal, who had a developmental disability. During Mychal's life, he struggled to find resources and services to support her needs as well as her zest for life. When she died, he decided to create those resources for other parents of children with developmental disabilities.
Today, Mychal's is committed to fulfilling the needs of the whole community and providing an accessible place for children, adults, and families to call home. Operating from two locations - a primary site in Hawthorne as well as an additional site in Culver City - Mychal's Learning Place recognizes that by challenging our children to succeed and having high expectations as they reach adulthood, we are enabling them to live independent, fulfilled, and productive lives. We emphasize interactive and inclusive environments; learning activities that will transfer to life-long independent living skills, job skills necessary for gainful employment, self-respect and knowledge of individual strengths and empowerment through education.
Over the years, Mychal's has sought ways in which our programs and services can be self-sustaining while supporting our mission of providing opportunities to further independence. From that idea came two social enterprise models, Mykie's Café and Bakery and Mychal's Prints. Both enterprises allow our participants job training and opportunities for gainful employment. Mykie's Café and Bakery teaches participants how to work as a team in a commercial kitchen and out in a community. Mychal's Prints teaches participants how to work with printing machinery and photoshop software.
