In just 21 days the
Pacific Meso Center
(PMC) will host the
2nd Annual 5K Walk/Hikefor Meso at the Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills.
Worthington & Caron, PC is proud to once again be the title sponsor of the event which seeks to
raise money for mesothelioma research and increase awareness about mesothelioma,
a cancer caused by asbestos.
Last year’s inaugural
was attended by over 200 walkers, hikers and runners. Many of the teams
were organized by families and friends of mesothelioma sufferers. The
event proved to be a source of inspiration and hope for those fighting
the disease. For those who have lost loved ones to the disease, the event
was an opportunity to heal through remembrance, camaraderie and working
together to support research that will benefit current and future mesothelioma
patients. Last year’s event raised over $66,900. This year’s
event promises to be bigger and even more successful!
The walk/hike takes teams along the scenic and wooded paths around historic
Paramount Ranch, where many famous western movies and television series have been filmed
since the 1930s. Following the walk, participants can satisfy the appetite
they worked up with a delicious lunch from
Ottavio’s Italian Restaurant. The lunch has been generously donated by Noella Belvedere, owner of Ottavio's,
whose husband Ottavio, the restaurant’s namesake, lost his battle
with mesothelioma in 2007. Craft beer will be provided by
Fireman’s Brew and wonderful prizes will be up raffle. Music will be performed by the
Chris Murphy violin trio.
Please join us for what promises to be another great event! You can put
together a team or walk as an individual. Registration is $35 and includes
lunch and a commemorative t-shirt. All proceeds will support research
into improved treatments and prevention strategies for mesothelioma being
conducted by the Pacific Meso Center at its two research laboratories
in Los Angeles.
Some teams are getting a head start on this year’s event. As of today,
25 days before the starting gun goes off, over $17,000 has been raised!
Let’s help PMC beat this year’s goal of $100,000!
Join us Sunday, October 27th 2013 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Paramount Ranch
in Agoura Hills.
