We timed 28 events in October. Amazing races. Mud runs, dirt Triathlons, beneficiary races. All of them for great causes. I have to catch up by showcasing Halloween road racing style. The LA CANCER CHALLENGE held the last weekend of October is for just that. To costume. To enjoy being characters. And to DO SOMETHING real to help the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. Spearheaded by Lisa Manheim and a foundation she oversees for her family’s foundation, this race an extensive effort to put on a A PLUS, classy race in Southern California. She puts so much detail and planning into her event it is a full-time, year round investment and for the fight to find a cure for pancreatic cancer. I respect Lisa as I watch her work so hard, efficiently, and effectively to do something about such a death sentence as Pancreatic Cancer. Her mother, Abi, started the foundation when her husband’s life was stopped short after the shattering diagnosis, “you have pancreatic cancer.” Most people diagnosised with this cancer only life for months. Read about Ronald Hirscherg and the Hirschberg Foundation at http://www.Hirschberg.com and this event in October. This is one race full of characters backed by character. I esteem the efforts of this family for making something BIG happen.
