One of Southern California’s longest-running charity races, the 23rd annual L.A. Cancer Challenge 5k Walk/Run has opened registration for in-person and virtual runners and walkers to raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer research.
Hosted and produced by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, the LACC will be held on UCLA’s campus, where research is performed at the foundation’s laboratories, on Oct. 25 from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual registration is offered as an alternative to in-person participation for those who are unable to attend. Virtual runners and walkers can safely participate in their community at their own paces with friends, family or solo.
Proceeds from the LACC will benefit the Hirshberg Foundation’s philanthropic efforts to advance cancer research and provide information, resources and support to pancreatic cancer patients and their allies. Since 1998, the LACC has raised more than $8.8 million dollars for pancreatic cancer research.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the LACC will continue to comply with local and state public health guidelines. Whether in-person or virtual, the LACC encourages all participants to be safe. If any participant or attendee has a fever or feels sick, do not attend or participate, and wear a mask or take any additional safety measures to mitigate the spread of the virus.
Registration for adults is $40 and $25 for youth runners and walkers.
