The Rose Run in Griffith Park – Raise Money To Support Cancer Research

My friend Jessica, aka Burbank Mom, lost her mother to breast cancer several years ago. She is one of those rare people who took her grief and turned into something hopeful, namely, an annual road race in her mother’s memory called The Rose Run. Proceeds from the events are for cancer research.

This year the Rose Run comes to Griffith Park. What a lovely place to do something healthy for yourself in the memory of one so loved, and to benefit someone in need. Cancer is a disease that touches almost everyone in some way. Your donation or your participation in the run is a testament to your concern and love for family members or friends affected by cancer.

I do my best, but packing lunches gets boring after a while. Depending on what we have in the cabinets, I toss in granola bars, pudding packs, applesauce, or the rare homemade chocolate chip cookie. I also slice fruit — usually apples — and put the slices in a plastic bag and squeeze in a […]
