Teen Cancer America is proud to announce that two of our celebrity ambassadors (with possibly a third) have signed up to run in the 2020 LA Marathon and LA Big5K.
World-renowned award-winning artist, actor, and score composer, Steven Vitali, is lending his legs and lungs to the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon to help support Teen Cancer America.
“This is not about winning or competing fast it’s about doing the best I can to help make awareness and to help raise money for Teen Cancer America, a charity I support with all my heart and will go the distance to help a dream be realized,” said Vitali. “That dream is transforming the lives of teens & young adults with cancer. Their mission is to improve the experience, outcomes, and survival of teens, and I feel honored to be chosen to their celebrity ambassador.”
