The Michael Hoefflin Foundation will hold its second annual Walk for Kids with Cancer on Saturday, March 24, at Cougar Stadium on the Valencia campus of College of the Canyons. The family-oriented event starts at 9 a.m., with registration opening at 8 a.m., and features a three-mile walk around the stadium and surrounding trails.
“We are very excited about this event,” said Gillian Stone, Acting Executive Director of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation. “It’s a great way for people to support the Foundation’s work with families battling children’s cancer, and we hope everyone will participate, if not as a walker, then by sponsoring a walker.”
“It’s exciting to see the community support building for the second annual Walk for Kids with Cancer, said event co-chair, Robert Barnes. “The Walk is a great family event, embraced by our community, allowing the Michael Hoefflin Foundation to continue providing support to children and families battling cancer.”
Registration is $25 per person. All participants pre-registered by Thursday, March 25, will receive a special t-shirt featuring artwork by a youth assisted by the Michael Hoefflin Foundation. Participants are encouraged to register now on the Foundation’s website, www.mhf.org, or by calling (661) 250-4100.
There will be recognition for largest team and most money raised for MHF; the organization reports that several teams of walkers have already been formed, with each walker getting sponsorship pledges from people who want to contribute, but cannot attend.
