During the Amgen Tour of California (May 13-20, 2012), the Breakaway from Cancer Champion, a local cancer survivor, patient, caregiver or advocate who has made a difference in his or her community, will be granted special access to the 2012 Amgen Tour of California, be recognized on stage and lead the Breakaway Mile walk through their community. Sponsored by Amgen, the Breakaway Mile takes place at the finish line of the Amgen Tour of California to honor the millions of cancer survivors worldwide.
The Cancer Support Community is thrilled that Victoria Moore, Danielle McLaughlin and Bob Hammer—three cancer survivors who have had an impact on their local Cancer Support Communities—were named finalists in the competition.
A public call for nominations was issued to four of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California communities, including Santa Rosa, Clovis, Livermore and Los Angeles. Our judging committee then narrowed the field to two to three finalists per host city. Voting for the Breakaway from Cancer Champion was opened to the public to select our winners, who should be announced soon!
