View Larger Map

Tonight, deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department square off against officers from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) at the 20th annual Fight for Life. This one-of-a-kind boxing match benefits lifesaving cancer research and treatment programs at City of Hope. LAPD officers and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies have been longtime supporters of City of Hope. In its 20-year history, the event has raised over $1 million for the institution.

This annual event continues to celebrate the longstanding commitment between the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Los Angeles Police Department and their dedication to supporting cancer and saving lives. Deputies and Officers will once again step into the ring to raise funds for those individuals stricken with life-threatening diseases and currently undergoing treatment at the City of Hope Center.

The history of this event can be traced back to 1994, when deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, working patrol in East Los Angeles, encountered a young boy stricken with cancer. The deputies were so touched by the spirit of this boy that they befriended his family and provided assistance in order to improve their quality of life.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and Fight starts at 7:00 p.m.
