Students gather for a pre-walk ceremony.

The Cancer Support Community South Bay (CSC South Bay) was one of two beneficiaries of the annual “Walk for Life” to support cancer patients on March 16th at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School ()PVPHS). More than 800 students, faculty, staff and members of the community took part in the walk to raise a total of $27,000 that was divided between the CSC South Bay and Duarte based City of Hope hospital. Students first took part in a traditional rose ceremony to commemorate friends and loved ones touched by cancer. The Walk began at PVPHS campus and finished at Highridge Park.
