Let’s go for Gold in this Olympian year and do something SPECIAL – help us raise $45,000
Because teens and young adults get cancer and need their own dedicated space in
hospital rather than being treated with little children or old people, Teen Cancer America
raises money to give to hospitals to help them create teen friendly environments for
young people with cancer . We need your help to do this
At the 5th largest Marathon in the world with thousands of athletes from all 50
states and more than 60 countries. You will take part in a lifetime race from the Dodgers
Stadium to Santa Monica pier through iconic Hollywood. This is a fantastic opportunity
to participate in such a world famous event, get fit and do something extraordinary for
young people with cancer.
