Four Seasons Las Vegas raises money for cancer care and research

Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas continues to make strides in the fight against cancer. The Hotel’s 13th Annual Seasons 4 a Cure Cancer Run & Fun Walk will be held Sunday, October 7, 2012 at the campus of UC San Diego Nevada Cancer Institute (NVCI) in Las Vegas.

Hosted by KSNV-Ch. 3, the local NBC affiliate, anchors Kim and Dana Wagner of the popular local morning show “Wake Up with the Wagners,” the run will be presented in conjunction with the Las Vegas Running Company. In addition to KSNV-TV Ch. 3, major sponsors include MIX 94.1 FM and the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper. All proceeds will benefit NVCI.

“The Seasons 4 a Cure event is not only a day of family fun for our entire community, but it contributes substantially to cancer research efforts here in the Las Vegas Valley,” says Mark Hellrung, general manager. “We are honoured to continue to raise money for UC San Diego Nevada Cancer Institute and its valuable programs and services.”

Seasons 4 a Cure is a family and pet-friendly event that will include a 5K Run & Fun Walk as well as a 100-yard children’s dash, children’s carnival activities and a breakfast buffet featuring tantalizing items prepared by Four Seasons chefs. Participants can also enter to win exciting raffle prizes, including dinners, show tickets, Four Seasons stays and more. To date, this community event, combined with the Hotel’s ongoing employee fundraising efforts, has raised more than USD 671,000.00 benefiting cancer research in the Las Vegas Valley.

“We can’t say enough about our friends at Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas and the amazing work they do to support cancer care and research in Nevada,” says John Sweetenham, MD, medical director of UC San Diego Nevada Cancer Institute. “The Seasons 4 a Cure Run is a great way to bring people together in the spirit of community to build awareness as well as support.”


“It’s very gratifying to have a partner like Four Seasons, which has not only taken community needs to heart as a company, but also has such an enthusiastic and tireless group of employees committed to the cause.”

Advanced registration fees are USD 25.00 for adults, USD 10.00 for children ages 12 and under and USD 20.00 for seniors 55 and older plus USD 3.00 for an Xtreme Timing Chip.
