Pedicatric Cancer Research Foundation “Reaching for the Cure”

“One person can make a difference and everyone should try.” –John F. Kennedy

The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) has grown from being an organization operating out of a CHOC closet space to an internationally recognized powerhouse in raising funds to combat childhood cancer.

PCRF has recently celebrated 30 years of funding research where they are on a journey to see childhood cancer become completely curable.  According to PCRF’s website “each year cancer kills more children and adolescents than any other disease.”

At the core the foundation is made up of an ever growing family of staff, researchers, partners and volunteers who are bonded with love and a similar vision.  What makes the foundation unique is having that love funneled directly into raising funds for effective research taking place in New York, Los Angeles etc.

You too can be a part of the PCRF family by participating in the newly named “Reaching for the Cure” half marathon including a 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk, 1K Kids’ Run & Bike Tour on Cinco De Mayo weekend.  The event takes place in the Irvine Spectrum area in Orange County, CA.
