“The Greatest Escape” Motorcycle Ride originated as a tribute to “The Great Escape” movie starring Steve McQueen, who died of mesothelioma. Since its inception, hundreds of riders have gathered each year to honor those who have lost the fight against mesothelioma and to raise money for research.

- 7th International Symposium on Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma – Join us Saturday, September 30, 2017
Join us at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center and learn about cutting-edge research and techniques. While the seminar is primarily designed for physicians and offers continuing medical education credit, it will also be highly informative for medical students and nurses, as well as mesothelioma patients and their families.
- 6th 5K Walk/Hike for Meso – Walk with us Sunday, October 22nd, 2017 at The Paramount Ranch
Help us make a difference! Malignant pleural mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer with few treatment options and even fewer sources of research funding. Join us and walk in solidarity to honor those who have lost the fight against mesothelioma and pay tribute to those who are still fighting. All proceeds will benefit the mesothelioma research programs at the PMC’s Punch Worthington Lab at UCLA and the Pacific Mesothelioma Center.
The Pacific Mesothelioma Center is proud to host the fourth annual 5K Walk/Hike for Meso to help fight malignant pleural mesothelioma. This family-friendly— and animal friendly!— fun walk/hike features a scenic route through the Santa Monica mountains with lunch, craft beer, entertainment and prizes at the finish line.
