Jerome’s has a longstanding relationship with the City of Hope and supports them on a recurring annual basis through donations, hosting bone marrow drives in the showrooms and the sponsorship of their annual Walk for Hope.
This year’s Walk took place on September 24, 2016 in beautiful Mission Bay. This family-friendly event included a 5K walk/run and a stand-up paddle board event where participants road a paddle board along the race route.
The morning kicked off with some light stretching and inspirational words from cancer survivors. Though many of the participants may have been strangers, the morning felt like a large group of family and friends enjoying the day together, all with a common goal, to help find a cure for cancer!
After the Walk, participants toured over 30 vendor booths, entered to win giveaways, enjoyed music and the Survivor’s Pavilion offered a continental breakfast, massages and special treats for cancer survivors.
