Welcome to Community Connect - May 1, 2023


Three cheers to our CSCVVSB founders, Beth Kin and Marty Nason who are featured in the May “Ode to Women” issue of Conejo Valley Lifestyle magazine! Their commitment and passion for providing cancer support to the community came to life in 1991 and we are thankful for their leadership and continued dedication! Check out the online issue here.

We are just 6 weeks away from one of our first major fundraisers of the year, Hope Walk! Registration is FREE this year, so please spread the word and join us as we honor cancer survivors, remember those we’ve lost to cancer and bring our community together for an invigorating morning walk through the beautiful CLU campus. The event is growing:

  • Lots of sponsor, vendor and community resources booths.
  • Survivor lap – our cancer survivors will lead the walk with the first lap around the field.
  • Survivor Tent – special goodies for all cancer survivors.
  • Honor those lost to cancer at the special remembrance area.
  • Kids Zone – fun activities to keep your littles busy, including face painting.
  • Fundraising incentives – can be picked up at the event or on June 3rd at the office.
  • Fun awards after the walk: Highest fundraising team and individual, largest team, most spirited team and sweeper award.
  • Coffee tent provided by Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

You won’t want to miss this year’s walk! If you haven't yet, register here!
