Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children ages 1 to 14 in the United States. This reality fuels our endeavors. As the leading referral center in the West for the diagnosis and treatment of the full spectrum of childhood cancers, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is working hard to prepare children for life as young adults. And research is a key focus of the Center—its “bench-to-bedside” approach to researchhelps move the best ideas from the laboratory to the patient in the form of promising new treatments.

It’s also a cause that is very near and dear to all of our hearts. Everyone on this team is either an employee, a family member of friend of an employee, or even a family member of a patient treated by this special hospital. Last year, our team raised more than $177,000 dollars in support of pediatric cancer research, winning the corporate fundraising challenge. We hope to do even better this year—because children with cancer deserve our support!

Founded in 1901, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is the first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California. The hospital is one of only eight children’s hospitals in the U.S. good enough to be ranked “Best” on the prestigious U.S. News & World Report “Honor Roll.”

The Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Triathlon Team thanks you for your support. We couldn’t do it without you!
