More than 3,000 runners and walkers participated in the 19th annual “L.A. Cancer Challenge” 5K/10K Walk/Run (LACC) on Oct. 30. It was the first year since 2003 that the LACC was hosted on the UCLA campus. The charity fundraiser – sponsored and produced by the Hirshberg Foundation – raised nearly $600,000 for pancreatic cancer research, bringing the 19-year total to more than $7.2 million. The LACC serves as a kick-off to Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November. Proceeds benefit the Hirshberg Foundation’s pancreatic cancer research and programs providing information, resources and support to pancreatic cancer patients and their families.
