Motivated to support the groundbreaking research at City of Hope.

These leaders have a long and distinguished history of support for City of Hope’s mission dating back to the early 1960s. Since 1996, a newly revitalized council has raised nearly $26 million to benefit groundbreaking research at City of Hope. The annual Spirit of Life celebration held each fall is the center of the LARE fundraising initiative, providing the industry with an opportunity to celebrate important work they’ve done in the fight against cancer and diabetes.
LARE is growing their efforts through expanding community outreach activities including blood drives and engaging the next generation of leaders via Building Hope – LARE’s strategic initiative for up-and-coming professionals in the industry. The efforts of LARE and Building Hope provide a unique platform for competitors and colleagues alike to network, have fun and support a great cause.
