Sponsored and produced by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, the LA Cancer Challenge (LACC) is one of Southern California’s largest and most popular charity races. The LACC will be held at its new home on the campus of UCLA (Wilson Plaza) and will serve as the kick-off to Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November.
The annual Halloween-themed, family-friendly charity event will host thousands of attendees. Kids can also run for a cure at the Kids Can Cure Fun Run. It is the perfect opportunity for children ages two to seven-years-old to participate in the LACC.
The LACC is a great way to start celebrating Halloween with fun for the whole family. Highlights will include a Health & Fitness Expo, Halloween Kids Zone, celebrities, live entertainment and a Children’s Halloween Parade & Adult Costume Contest.
General registration includes a chip-timed event, T-shirt, bib, custom designed finishers’ medal and a runner's gift bag. Custom winners’ medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each age category. In addition to medals, overall 1st - 3rd place male & female winners for the 5K and 10K will receive prizes.
To date, the LACC has raised more than $6.7 million dollars for pancreatic cancer research. The Hirshberg Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for pancreatic cancer and improving early detection methods.
