"Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We’ll spend the next weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we’ll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others. Together, we’ll be a part of making a difference in this important cause."
