Worthington & Caron is pleased to announce that it will again serve
as lead sponsor for the
7th Annual 5k Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma on
Sunday, October 21, 2018 at the iconic old Hollywood saloon town of 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.
Last year’s event raised over $160,000. Since its inception, over
$650,000 has been raised for mesothelioma research. With your help, we
hope to raise $200,000 at this year’s event, over $53,000 has already
been raised towards that goal!
“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," Clare Cameron, Executive Director of PMC and organizer
of the event said. “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 and literally.”
Registration is $45 per person and participants will receive a t-shirt,
enjoy live entertainment by The Six Billion Dollar Band, and a generous
catered lunch catered by Italia’s Deli. As in years past, there
will be a raffle and silent auction offering
Actor Larry Wilcox, known for his role as "Officer Jon Baker"
on the hit TV show CHiPS, will return as the emcee for this year's
event. Larry is a longtime supporter of PMC. He is also a former patient
of PMC Scientific Advisor, Dr. Robert Cameron.
