You Can Do It sign runner purple-Angela Daves-Haley-crpdOn 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.

These photos by Angela Daves-Haley will make you feel like you were there cheering, too.
