This Event Took Place Sat. Oct 15, 2022

RunforAmma Charity Run to Benefit UCSF Cancer Research

The RunforAmma is an annual event to help raise awareness and money to aid in cutting-edge research and treatments for cancer.

100% of the registration proceeds will be donated directly to the UCSF BRCA lab.

10th Annual Running

2022 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Run for Amma.

The RunforAmma originated as a solo run to honor Champa Seshadri (“Amma”) who had terminal cancer as a means to raise money and awareness for cutting-edge cancer research. Amma was involved in the route planning for the inaugural year and was able to witness the finish of the run. She passed away a few weeks after the first run - but not before telling me to run this every year as a way to remember her strength and determination to live life to its fullest.
