Why Run with Team Concern?

The numbers are staggering. Cancer is now the world’s leading cause of mortality, taking over 8 million lives annually, and that number continues to rise.

In 2015, more than 589,000 people will die of cancer in the United States, and by 2030 it will surpass heart disease as the #1 cause of death in the U.S. With nearly 15 million Americans with a history of cancer today, and 1.7 million new cancer cases diagnosed this year alone, everyone is affected by cancer.

Concern Foundation combats this epidemic by funding innovative cancer research worldwide. Through the promotion of active and healthy lifestyles and participation in endurance races and athletic events, Team Concern was formed to raise funds and awareness to support our mission to Conquer Cancer Now. In seven years, Team Concern has raised more than $730,000 that has gone directly to cancer research and treatment programs in Los Angeles and around the world.

Join Team Concern today, and together we will be one step closer to our goal of conquering cancer!

For questions about joining Team Concern, registering for the event or supporting the Team, please contact Jena Brown at jena@concernfoundation.org or 310.360.6100. Specific event details on the 2016 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon & LA Big 5K can be found HERE.
