The 2017 Los Angeles March for Marrow took place on a perfect Southern California Day, with patients, caregivers, and supporters coming together for fun, exercise, camaraderie, and of course awareness and fundraising.

Runners in 5K strived for personal bests. Teams walked in groups carrying their team signs, along the shore next to the Queen Mary.
