The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation (DSLRF), a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 breast cancer organization, is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Love Walk/Run on May 22, 2011. For the first time, the event will add a running component to the 5K as well as a family food festival. The walk/run starts at Pacific Palisades Branch Library at 861 Alma Real Drive in Pacific Palisades, CA. Registration opens at 9 AM; Walk starts at 10 AM.

“The LOVE Walk/Run raises money for innovative and groundbreaking breast cancer research that focuses on prevention and finding the cause with a goal to stop breast cancer before it even starts,” said Dr. Susan Love, president and medical director of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. “Here’s your chance to support a local breast cancer organization that has a national reach.”

The Fourth Annual Love Walk/Run is organized in partnership with the Pacific Palisades Junior Women’s Club and is sponsored in part by: City National Bank, Merrill Lynch, On Assignment, CareerBuilder, HUB International, Prudential Realty and Rose Greene Financial Services. This year’s media sponsors include K-EARTH 101 and KFWB NEWS TALK 980.

The 5K course takes participants through the beautiful Huntington neighborhood of the Pacific Palisades and is an opportunity to join local breast cancer survivors and other members of the community interested in eradicating this disease.

Over the past three years, the Love Walk has raised more than 0,000 for the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation. One hundred percent of these proceeds are used to fund research that is moving breast cancer beyond a cure.

After the walk/run, the community is invited to enjoy a family food festival with several local food trucks, including: Let’s Be Frank, Coolhaus Ice Cream, Del’s Lemonade and the Hungry Nomad Truck! Plus, various free activities for the kids.

Susan M. Love, MD, MBA, a resident of Pacific Palisades, is a clinical professor of surgery at UCLA and President of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation (www.dslrf.org). A founder of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, she was appointed by President Clinton to the National Cancer Advisory Board. Her New York Times bestseller Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book is now in its fifth edition and is still considered to “the bible for women with breast cancer.”

The mission of DSLRF is to eradicate breast cancer and improve the quality of women’s health through innovate research, education and advocacy. For more information visit www.dslrf.org.
