Share Article

An anticipated 1,000 health conscious San Diegans will unite on September 27 at Mission Bay to walk or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) in support of City of Hope, one of the nation’s leading centers for cancer treatment and research.

Together4Hope is comprised of a leisurely 5K, a SUP course or a 2 day/ 40 mile walk. The family focused event features a scenic bay front 5K walk, kids activities and a lively wellness marketplace with over 30 vendors. Acclaimed fitness instructors from Fit4Mom & Aspire Running will warm up, stretch out, educate and empower the crowd. This is the perfect opportunity for the entire family to learn, enjoy demonstrations, indulge in healthy samples and fundraise for cancer research. Cancer survivors will be honored at the event.

“City of Hope in some ways operates as a grassroots organization,” said Robyn Hima, Regional Director of Philanthropy for City of Hope, “We provide opportunities in the community to showcase the dedication of everyday folks who are passionate in their desire to find a cure for cancer.”

Together4Hope event sponsors, California Bank & Trust, Jerome’s Furniture, NASSCO, Sigma-Aldrich, The SUP Connection, San Diego 6 The CW, and Anar Party Rentals, support Together4Hope because the proceeds from the event benefit all types of cancer research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope (http://www.cityofhope.org).
