IMPACT Kickin' Cancer!®

The Lynne Cohen Foundation engages and builds community while raising life-saving funds through its Kickin' Cancer!® events. This year, LCF supporters biked, walked, ran, hiked, got dressed up and even shopped in Kickin' Cancer!® events. We are touched and honored by the passion with which everyone comes out to support the foundation's programs and vision. 


The next Kickin' Cancer!® event is coming right up at SoulCycle Beverly Hills on December 17th. Click below to REGISTER TODAY:

"Many in my family have the BRCA mutation. While we have each made different decisions regarding how we manage our risks, each member of my family feels that they have made the decision with the support and compassion of the team at the NYU Clinic. I feel incredibly fortunate that my breast cancer was caught at a very early stage and that  I was able to reduce the risk that I will ever face breast or ovarian again to almost nothing."

"We are very grateful to the Lynne Cohen Foundation. It helps us move forward in a positive way... This is our 8th year doing Kickin’ Cancer, and we do it in memory of our mother, Linda, who died of ovarian cancer… We know that the money we raise today is going towards early detection, which is of course something that we are very aware of and that is important for both us and our daughters."


-Sharon and Alison

"Kickin' Cancer! is a great event! It helps us all be more aware, and I think people need to be just as agrressive as cancer in the fight against it. I enjoy being part of the Kickin’ Cancer community and running for the cause!"
