On October 18, 2009, the annual Run 4 Her Life 5k and 10k Run/Walk was held at The Americana at Brand shopping center in Glendale, California, and My Teen Topix was there to cover the day. The money raised from the event went to support the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Centre and breast cancer research. The grueling races began early in the morning, before the day got too warm and finished by 10:00 AM.
The event was terrific fun and included a health fair, and an incredible concert after party that included the celebrated Grammy Award winning singer Mya, who can currently be seen on the popular ABC show, Dancing With The Stars! Not only did Mya perform, but so did pop star Jordan Johnson, singer Lili Hayden, piano-pop band The Quiet and keyboardist/singer Margie Hauser.
A special thanks goes to Karin Purvis the founder and Director of Run 4 Her Life, One Hope, and our friends at the peakPRGoup for organizing the event. Click on photos to enlarge, photos © Allan Peach 2009

You know Mya, that marvelous R&B singer? Well I saw her perform at the Run 4 Her Life concert. She sang to raise money for breast cancer research and trust me, she was amazing. Not only is Mya a singer, she is a dancer, actress, model and a current contestant on Dancing With the Stars! The many-talented Mya has already won a Grammy Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Mya felt very passionate about this event because her own mother is a cancer survivor. p.s. Mya's full name is Mya Marie Harrison. Click on photos to enlarge, photos © Allan Peach 2009
