Worthington & Caron is pleased to announce that it will again serve as lead sponsor for the
5th Annual 5k Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma on October 23rd, 2016 at the Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. The event is family and
dog friendly, so bring your little ones and furry friends!
The event is hosted by
The Pacific Mesothelioma Center (PMC) at the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI), with 100%
of proceeds supporting PMC’s much-needed research for a cure for
mesothelioma. To date, PMC has raised over $5 million in the campaign
to fund new research in the fight against mesothelioma.
Each of the last four years’ events raised over $100,000; and in
2013 over $75,000 was raised. This year, with your help, we hope to break
the record and raise $150,000 for mesothelioma research! $22,000 has already
been raised towards that goal!
"Most of you know how devastating mesothelioma is, how underfunded
it is compared to other cancers, and how greater awareness needs to be
brought to it besides the late night advertisements you see on the television.”
Clare Cameron, Executive Director of PMC said. “The goal of the
5K Walk for Meso began as a means to raise funds and awareness for mesothelioma
and throughout the years has fostered a community. The PMC walk unites
this community with the knowledge that, we, the sufferers of mesothelioma
friends and families, walk with them through this battle both figuratively
