The Eastern Sierra Cancer Alliance (ESCA) is a grassroots non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Alliance was conceptualized after Patricia Ramirez from Bishop, CA returned from an Avon 3-day event. Inspired and motivated, she came home to help community members with resource information about their disease and to help them with financial aid, if necessary.
In 2001, ESCA held its first annual 5k walk / 10k fun run, raising funds to help those in Inyo and Mono County with cancer.
Since ESCA’s inception, this organization has helped many by providing resources, financial aid, and has given moral support for those fighting cancer.
