“The LOVE Walk/Run raises money for innovative and groundbreaking breast cancer research that focuses on prevention and finding the cause with a goal to stop breast cancer before it even starts,” said Dr. Susan Love, president and medical director of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. “Here’s your chance to support a local breast cancer organization that has a national reach.”
The Fifth Annual Love Walk/Run is organized in partnership with the Pacific Palisades Women's Club and is sponsored in part by: City National Bank, Merrill Lynch, On Assignment, Lifetime Networks, and Prudential.
The 5K course takes participants through the beautiful Huntington neighborhood of the Pacific Palisades and is an opportunity to join local breast cancer survivors and other members of the community interested in eradicating this disease.
Over the past four years, the Love Walk has raised more than $120,000 for the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. One hundred percent of these proceeds are used to fund research that is moving breast cancer beyond a cure.
After the walk/run, the community is invited to enjoy a family food festival with several local food trucks, including: Let’s Be Frank, Holy Aoli, and Del's Lemonade! Plus, various free activities for the kids.
