2018 Torch Run – Champions Run for Life
Saturday, June 9 | 8:30am-2:00pm
200 Aquarium Way, Long Beach 90802 | Shoreline Aquatic Park
Join the spectators and cheer on the runners. Patients of Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Center at Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach will participate in an Olympic-style, fun-filled torch relay. Each year, 300 patients and their families gather to celebrate those who won the battle, those who are still fighting, and those who have lost the battle to this life-threatening disease. Each patient holds a torch as they run, walk, are carried, or are wheeled the 400 yards until passing the torch to the next waiting patient. To sponsor a runner or to make a donation to the Children’s Hospital, visit the link below.
