Please become a “Safety Strider” teammate to support the Jazz By The Bay 5k on Sunday Nov. 10th in building awareness of lung cancer — while funding vital research programs.

San Diego American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) chapter members are taking a stand against lung cancer, and we hope you’ll stand with us! Together, we can make a difference to those affected by this devastating disease. We can show the world that it’s time to make surviving lung cancer the expectation, not the exception.

Here are three ways you can join us in making this vision a reality:

1. Donate to a team member to support our fundraising efforts & goal of $500 – find the team list on the right side of this page:

2. Click on the “Join” button to join our team

3. Spread the word about our fundraising efforts by sending the link to this webpage to everyone you know

The money we raise together will support the Lung Cancer Research Foundation and its mission to improve lung cancer outcomes by funding research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of lung cancer. On event day, our team will enjoy being together, but the real reward is that we’re raising funds that will save lives. You can help us bring hope to those affected by lung cancer.

Please donate today and invite a friend to do the same. If you can join our team for the event, we’d love to have you! We can’t wait to celebrate our successes with you on event day.
