BENEFITING: HURDLE JUMPERS
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
Hurdle Jumpers is a Los Angeles based non-profit organization devoted to comforting patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. We provide comfort kits for cancer patients across the United States. Our kits contain a variety of nationally recognized donated sample products that help alleviate some of the side effects of cancer therapy, along with patient educational materials, helpful tips and advice, a relaxation CD and humor book.
Designed from a patient’s perspective, our kits help people dealing with the shock, anxiety and exhaustion of a cancer diagnosis to conserve their energy, improve their quality of life during treatment, and focus on getting well.
Our organization was founded five years ago by a cancer survivor who made it her mission to help patients along their journey to wellness. To date, over 3,400 cancer warriors have soared over the obstacles of cancer treatment using our specialized comfort care kits. Our Founder, Janet Halbert, was selected by the Los Angeles Business Journal as Volunteer of the Year and by the City of Los Angeles as a Pioneer Woman.
Sadly, so many of our lives have been touched by cancer. Your support will make a difference in a cancer patient's day. Thank you.
Jump in, run with Team Hurdle Jumpers and help us reach our goal:
26.2 miles, $25,000 = 1,200 more cancer patients soaring over the obstacles of cancer treatment. The Marathon will take runners and walkers from Stadium to the Sea. Starting at Dodger Stadium, the course will wind its way through Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and finish at the picturesque Santa Monica coast. Jump in and be part of one of the largest organized road races in the world.
Ready, set, go help cancer patients soar over the obstacles of cancer treatment.
