Fundraising results

The 2014 Los Angeles Hope, Steps a Cure event raised over $42,000 for AA&MDSIF on a single day! For comparison, the five Hope, Steps & A Cure walks held around the country in 2013 raised an average of $22,800.

At the L.A. Walk there were 80 registered runners, 202 registered walkers, 21 walk teams, and over 50 volunteers. In additional to raising funds, we're proud to report that 12 potential bone marrow donors signed up with Be The Match.

Thank you to everyone who participated this year and to everyone who supported our runners and walkers.

We expect to continue the growth of this event and shine again in 2015!
