Families, friends and racing enthusiasts -- or all of the above -- are invited to get on track (literally) at Santa Anita Park on April 17 to support women's cancer programs at the City of Hope.
After the last race on closing day, visitors can walk, run, leap or skip on the same quarter mile that horses such as Seabiscuit have trod. Cameras are encouraged, along with enthusiastic yelps, all in honor of those who have struggled with cancer or succumbed to it.
A $10 or greater donation is needed before visitors take to the track. Purple T-shirts featuring the official color and "On Track" logo will also be on sale for $10 each. All proceeds benefit City of Hope, California's comprehensive cancer center located in Duarte.
