Portland Metro Yoga Message Board › Stand up to cancer
|A former member||
On September 5, 2008 the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) is joining forces in the nationwide rallying cry and mobilization effort Stand Up 2 Cancer, which will be broadcast at 8pm (ET/PT) on the three major television networks – ABC, CBS and NBC. In this historic collaboration, each network is donating one hour of simultaneous commercial-free primetime for a nationally televised fundraising event aimed at ending cancer’s reign as a leading cause of death.
Produced by LAF friend, acclaimed movie producer and cancer survivor Laura Ziskin, the Stand Up 2 Cancer event is the first of its kind in the cancer community. By raising philanthropic dollars for accelerating ground-breaking research, Stand Up 2 Cancer will have an enormous impact in facilitating the goal of making cancer a national priority.
The Stand Up 2 Cancer special will feature LAF founder and chairman Lance Armstrong, as well as live performances by legendary recording artists and stars from film and television and filmed content giving viewers insight into cancer. Stand Up 2 Cancer is a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and was established by a group of media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders, whose lives have all been affected by cancer in significant ways.
Join me on Sept 5 !
