Farmers fights cancer with City of Hope
Farmers is proud to announce a new partnership with the City of Hope. In 2010 Farmers will be a national sponsor of the City of Hope Walk for Hope series to support the research and eradication of all women’s cancers.
Last year, Farmers was a local event sponsor for City of Hope’s Los Angeles Walk for Hope, and more than 100 Farmers employees walked and raised $12,000 for breast cancer research. This year, the Walk expands its reach to fight all women’s cancers, and Farmers will expand its sponsorship to seven additional cities: San Diego, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Chicago, Seattle and Washington D.C., opening the opportunity for agents and employees from around the country to become involved in a walk near them.
In its 16-year history, Walk for Hope has raised more than $29 million, and it’s the nation’s only series of walks that directly benefit research, treatment and education programs for cancers unique to women. Farmers has been a proud supporter of the City of Hope for many years, but this is the first year we’ve taken on the role of national Walk for Hope sponsor.
