Why Mother's Day Meso Run?
Mother’s Day Meso Run is dedicated to fighting mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, through an annual 5K run/walk for the public in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, on the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend. Our inaugural run/walk on May 12, 2018, raised awareness about mesothelioma and allowed us to support the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation), a registered 501(c)(3) that is close to our hearts. We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2nd Annual Mother's Day Weekend Meso Run on Saturday May 11, 2019! And we are excited to announce that this year's run/walk will also benefit the Meso Foundation.
One of our aims is to educate others about mesothelioma and asbestos.
We are grateful to the Meso Foundation for all of its invaluable information about mesothelioma and treatment options.
In addition, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization provides critical advocacy regarding asbestos use and exposure. We are grateful to ADAO for sharing with us important information regarding the risks of asbestos.
