About Stop Cancer and The Marni Fund
Following Marni’s passing, Krav Maga Worldwide held it’s first “Fighting For The Cure” fundraiser, the proceeds of which helped plant the seed funding for The Marni Fund. Thereafter, a substantial Marni Fund three year research grant was awarded to Dr. Melanie Palomares at City of Hope. In 2007, as a result of growing support, additional grants were made to Dr. Sara Hurvitz at UCLA/Jonsson and to Dr. Christopher Haiman at USC/Norris.
Marni, you will be missed, but never forgotten.

Outdoor Workout Update:
When: Sunday May 22 at 9:00am
Where: Temescal Canyon Gateway Park, Pacific Palisades. What: This is a popular hiking loop with great views of the ocean on clear days, a seasonal waterfall, and a densely wooded canyon. The 2.5 mile loop starts out on Temescal Ridge Trail, climbing almost 1,000 feet in the first mile.
Directions: From Santa Monica, drive north on Pacific Coast Highway (1) for 2.6 mile to Temescal Canyon Road and turn right. You will approach the Park entrance where Temescal Cyn and Sunset intersect. You can either park inside the park for $7.00, or park for free on Temescal Cyn and walk into the park. We will meet up at the first parking lot of the park.
What to Bring: Whatever you like for a day hike. Water, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen…etc. We recommend trail running shoes. It’s a fast pace up the mountain but if you prefer hiking boots that will do just fine.
