Pacific Meso Center's 8th Annual Walk for Mesothelioma

This past Saturday (October 26th) the Pacific Meso Center’s 8th Annual Walk for Mesothelioma took place at Will Rogers State Historic Park in the Santa Monica Mountains. Over $112,000 was raised to spread awareness and support PMC’s much-needed research for a cure for mesothelioma.

The weather forecast was blazing but that didn’t stop hikers from braving the gradual hike to Inspiration Point. Clear skies allowed for far reaching views from the Santa Monica Bay to downtown Los Angeles.

Afterwards hikers congregated on the beautiful green lawn, (the only outdoor polo field in Los Angeles!) and were rewarded with a BBQ lunch, an auction, and raffle offering up some great prizes.

We also remembered the friends and family we have lost to mesothelioma and honored those who are still fighting! Tina Herford and Anna Schofield were among the patients who made it out. They are an inspiration to everyone in the community and proof that funding research into better treatment options improves quality of life and longevity.

“This was such a wonderful turn out here at our new location at Will Roger’s State Park. It was heartbreaking to lose Paramount Ranch in last year’s fires, but this is a beautiful place for us to come together for our cause.” Clare Cameron, Executive Director at PMC.

Thank you to Dr. Cameron for all that you do and to Nurse Lien, and a special thanks to Clare Cameron and Super Volunteer Victoria Adams, as well as all of the volunteers and participants who made this event possible with their time and support.

Thank you to all who came to support the cause and see you next year!

Worthington & Caron, P.C. is proud to serve as the lead sponsor for this fun and important fundraising event year after year since the first 5k was held in 2012.
