The Arizona Boardwalk, 9500 E. Vía de Ventura, will provide the setting for TGen’s 18th annual Step-N-Out, a family-friendly 5k event 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, dedicated to supporting pancreatic cancer research at the Translational Genomics Research Institute, part of City of Hope.
Registration opens at 6:30 a.m. and walk-ups are welcome. Participants who register by 11:59 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25, will receive a Step-N-Out T-shirt commemorating this event. Register at tgen.org/step.
“Step-N-Out unites the community and generates awareness for pancreatic cancer all while having fun,” said Erin Massey, Chief Development Officer at TGen and Vice President of Philanthropy at City of Hope. “Patients, survivors, loved ones, caregivers, medical professionals, and supporters from across the nation converge in-person and virtually to raise awareness and vital funds in support of the latest research and clinical advances for pancreatic cancer at TGen.”
In-person activities include a 5K run/walk, a 1-mile Fun Run and a Kids' Dash.
The TGen Foundation is looking for corporate sponsors who want to showcase their organization and brand while engaging customers and partners in a meaningful way as they demonstrate their commitment to the community. Sponsorships for Step-N-Out range from $1,500 to $10,000.
Organizations can also form corporate teams giving leadership and employees an opportunity to share their compassion through volunteerism. Participating as a corporate team creates a special camaraderie that transfers into the workplace.
Additionally, family teams can celebrate, honor or remember a loved one whose life has been touched by pancreatic cancer.
