Race Information

October marks the Annual LA Cancer Challenge 5K Walk/Run, the signature fundraising event of the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Held on the beautiful campus of UCLA, where much of the foundation's research is conducted, So Cal's best Halloween-themed fitness event includes a Fit Family Expo with food & beverage booths, activity tents, Candyland Kids Zone and more.

Registration includes a Chip Timed Event, T-Shirt and Custom Running Bib. At the heart of the LACC, which has raised over $7.3 million to date, is our goal to unite generations, young and old, through physical fitness to create public awareness and raise much-needed funds for pancreatic cancer research.
