Mickey Fine Pharmacy & Grill Goes the Distance With Hirshberg Foundation, LA Cancer Challenge

Mickey Fine Pharmacy & Grill(TM) (www.mickeyfine.com) and its Exodus Private Training & Pilates Studio(R) (www.exodustraining.com) are supporting The Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, dedicated to finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer and improving early detection methods.

According to the owners of Mickey Fine and Exodus, "We are supporting The Hirshberg Foundation on every level possible. This year marks the 10th anniversary of a family member's death from Pancreatic Cancer. We can think of no better way to honor his memory than working with the Hirshberg Foundation in their efforts to fight Cancer."

The profits from Mickey Fine's Saturday breakfast and lunch on October 18th will be donated to the Foundation. October 18th marks the first Saturday we will be open for business at our Mickey Fine Grill. We are honored to share this launch with The Hirshberg Foundation in their effort to fight Pancreatic Cancer. Please join us from 8:30am-2pm for our Saturday brunch at Mickey Fine Grill at 433 N Roxbury Drive.

Mickey Fine and Exodus Training are also bringing the largest team to the event this year. The team is reaching out to their internal team and customers to fight this disease. Aaron King, a PES (Performance Enhancement Specialist) and CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) at Exodus Training, who was voted one of the top four trainers in Los Angeles according to LA Confidential Magazine, will be leading our team. We are also proud to announce he will be supporting The Foundation by leading the opening warm-ups for over 3,000 participants.
