WHO IS PART OF TEAM CONCERN?

This year we are teaming up with Beauty Bus Foundation, Cedar-Sinai Cancer Survivorship and Rehabilitation, CureSearch for Children’s Cancer, and the Kevin Cordasco Foundation: Something Yellow to grow Team Concern and to raise funds for cancer research and share a portion of the monies raised for some important programs for cancer patients and families to make our 11th year as participants the most successful marathon year yet.

Beauty Bus Foundation delivers dignity, hope and respite to chronically or terminally ill individuals and their caregivers through beauty and grooming services and pampering products.

Cedar-Sinai Cancer Survivorship and Rehabilitiation is dedicated to helping cancer survivors live their lives to the fullest.  It seeks to address the physical, psychological and information needs of cancer patients and their families as cancer treatment is completed.

CureSearch for Children’s Cancer accelerates the pace of pediatric drug development by driving industry and academic collaborations to fund only the strongest research with the potential to quickly advance to the clinic and marketplace, reaching children now – not 10-20 years from now.
 
The Kevin Cordasco Foundation: Something Yellow is committed to raising awareness and funds to support childhood cancers and was inspired by Kevin Cordasco, a courageous young man who battled neuroblastoma for seven years before he passed away at the age of 16.
 
WHY RUN WITH TEAM CONCERN?

The numbers are staggering. Cancer is now the world’s leading cause of mortality, taking over 8 million lives annually, and that number continues to rise.
 
Concern Foundation combats this epidemic by funding innovative cancer research worldwide. Through the promotion of active and healthy lifestyles and participation in endurance races and athletic events, Team Concern was formed to raise funds and awareness to support our mission to Conquer Cancer Now. In ten years, Team Concern has raised more than $1 million that have gone directly to cancer research, services for cancer patients and treatment programs in Los Angeles and around the world.
 
Join Team Concern today, and together we will be one step closer to our goal of conquering cancer!
