The Man Behind The Runyon Canyon Dream Court

Thirty-five thousand people come to Runyon Canyon Park each week. Our client Neima Khaila says he is just one of them. The 28-year-old chief executive of Pink Dolphin, a Los Angeles company that sells limited-edition street wear, hikes or runs the park’s trails three or four times a week.

“It’s beautiful. It’s a great workout,” he said. “And the community, it’s really diverse — young people, old people, different races, different ethnicities.”

Khaila’s love of Runyon was what drove him, he said, to donate more than $250,000 to fix a problem. His money is paying for a new retaining wall above one trail. He is covering the cost of a basketball court.

Neima’s efforts were chronicled  in this LA Times article, we worked with Nita Lelyveld to give his side of the story.
