On October 2nd, we will be supporting friend-of-the-Truffle, Amy Cohen Epstein (John Thomas Dye ’88, Brentwood ’94), at KICKIN’ CANCER 5K Walk/Run on San Vicente in Brentwood. Celebrating 15 years of this magnificent event, the walk/run serves as the Lynne Cohen Foundation’s signature and largest fundraising event. Kickin’ Cancer brings together a huge community of women, men and children to support the women in their lives. It is a non-competitive event (no timing) and super fun for the whole family; the older kids love to run/walk the 5K, while there is an adorable Kiddie 1K for the little ones.
