The 26th Annual L.A. Cancer Challenge 5K Walk/Run (LACC) is a Halloween-themed charity race hosted and produced by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. 

Walkers and runners hit the 5K course dressed in festive costumes or purple team T-shirts to show unity for finding a pancreatic cancer cure. Custom Winners Medals are awarded to the top three in-person finishers in each five-year age division while the fastest overall male and female top three winners for the 5k will receive prizes.

The in-person event includes a free Fit Family Expo featuring a wide variety of vendors, Halloween festivities, activity tents, course entertainment and more.  Kids of all ages can enjoy a magical and whimsical experience at the Candy Land Kids Zone, which features life-size décor including colorful lollipops and gum drops as well as fun Halloween activities including a Candy Land Moonbounce, face painting and arts and crafts.

Virtual participants are invited to personalize a local fundraiser from anywhere by rallying family, friends, and neighbors to walk or run the 5k throughout their community. Gear consisting of adult and youth T-shirts and finisher’s medal will be mailed, while running bibs are available to download and print from home.

Mommy Poppins is a proud media sponsor of this event.
