Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

If you have questions about our calendar, or would like to add a listing, please contact calendar@bigsunday.org or submit your event/opportunity via the button below.

CA Run/Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases @ Crescent Bay Park
Jun 23 @ 8:00 am
CA Run/Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases @ Crescent Bay Park | Santa Monica | California | United States

We invite you to join LE&RN’s Spokesperson and Academy Award-winner, Kathy Bates who will be kicking off the California Run/Walk and with hundreds of LE&RN supporters in their fight against lymphedema and lymphatic diseases. We will run or walk this 5K course on behalf of the estimated 10 million Americans and 250 million worldwide who are fighting this Lymphedemic. LE&RN's mission is to fight lymphatic disease and lymphedema through education, research and advocacy.

More people are affected by these diseases in the U.S. than suffer from Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, ALS, Parkinson's Disease, and AIDS – combined. LE, an incurable and chronic disease that results in disfiguring and disabling swelling of body parts, affects an estimated 15% of all cancer survivors and up to 30% of breast cancer survivors. Those afflicted with Primary LE are born with the disease, but can develop symptoms at any time. Yet our community suffers from a lack of awareness, misdiagnoses, and a shortage of treatment facilities, leading to a “Lymphedemic™.”
