On Sunday, March 9, the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research posed as cheerleaders to don purple pom-poms and encourage thousands of runners in the LA Marathon.
An official charity for the LA Marathon, the Foundation rallied lots of volunteers and provided a peppy cheering squad to uplift runners and walkers as they grew nearer to the finish line just a few miles away.
With their purple signs saying “You Can Do It”, the Foundation’s cheering station had a DJ stage playing happy music as volunteers handed out valuable information about pancreatic cancer.
