Long Beach Team Spirit Breast & Ovarian Cancer 10K
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will develop breast cancer and one in 75 women will develop ovarian cancer during their lifetime. On Sept. 26, the 16th Annual Team Spirit Breast & Ovarian Cancer 5K & 10K will bring together thousands of survivors, family members and friends affected by these cancers to raise funds for the MemorialCare Todd Cancer Institute (TCI) at Long Beach Memorial.
More than 1,200 people came together on Sat., Sept. 24 to bring awareness to breast and ovarian cancer by walking in the 12th Annual Team Spirit Breast and Ovarian Cancer 10K Walk. Team Spirit started and ended in the parking lot of McKenna’s on the Bay, the official location sponsor, where the Long Beach Fire Department sounded their siren to signal the beginning of the Walk.
The Long Beach Cinematheque is once again teaming up with “Team Tough Titties” and Lola’s Mexican Cuisine to raise funds for the Team Spirit Breast & Ovarian Cancer 10K – this time, with a screening of the 1980 comedy classic “9 to 5” starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and in her feature film debut, Dolly Parton!
Now entering their 7th consecutive fundraising season, Team Tough Titties is ramping up fundraising efforts in preparation for this fall’s Team Spirit Breast & Ovarian Cancer 10K Walk, beginning with a night of cocktails, coozies, cookies and more at the Pike Restaurant & Bar in Long Beach on Saturday, July 16.
