Over $300,000 raised for the fight against blood cancer!
Slap Cancer Save Lives has raised over $300,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Slap Cancer formed in 2011 to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and support Brianna Haag’s nomination for LLS’s Woman of the Year, a 10-week nationwide fundraising competition that originated in San Francisco 22 years ago. In addition to raising money, the campaign’s goal was to promote awareness for blood cancer research and bring young professionals together to achieve something great. The Slap Cancer fundraising campaign hosted a series of events (all ticketed via Eventbrite) to reach and ultimately double their initial goal of $100,000, enough money to fund four Bay Area researchers for an entire year. Today, the Slap Cancer legacy lives on through its most successful event, The Mr. Marina Competition, now an annual occasion in San Francisco.
