March 25, 2018, Irvine Valley College

The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation is pleased to announce our 20th Anniversary Reaching for the Cure Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, Kids Run will take place on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at Irvine Valley College. Together we will celebrate 20 years of life-saving research dollars raised at this event in honor of pediatric cancer warriors, patients, and survivors everywhere.

Last year over 34,967 miles were dedicated to pediatric cancer research thanks to the 5,000 runners, walkers, fundraisers, sponsors, vendors and volunteers that came out from all over Southern California in an effort to Reach for the Cure!

Every year fundraisers have helped PCRF reach our fundraising goals. This year, we aim to celebrate our 20th anniversary with a record-breaking high of $300,000 - to beat last year's $250,000 achievement - are you in?

Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation has utilized a social fundraising platform for more than a decade. It increases awareness of our mission, and it increases funding for the ever expanding footprint that PCRF is developing across the nation. Less than 4% of NIH cancer research dollars are spent on pediatric cancers. For far too long, babies and children have been receiving scaled down adult treatments that often leave survivors with lasting effects and a very high probability of additional cancers in the future. At PCRF we stand vigilant in our mission to fund research that improves the care, quality of life and survival rate of children with malignant disease. Thank you for joining in the fight.
