"Amgen is passionate about helping those with cancer, and we are proud to honor individuals who have made a positive difference in the fight against cancer," said Stuart Arbuckle, vice president and general manager, Amgen Oncology. "Breakaway from Cancer was founded on the knowledge that it takes a team to overcome this disease and the Champions program exemplifies this commitment to helping others."

Founded by Amgen in 2005, Breakaway from Cancer raises awareness of the important resources available to people impacted by cancer – from prevention through survivorship. Breakaway from Cancer represents a collaboration between Amgen and four nonprofit organizations dedicated to empowering patients with education, resources, and hope.

The Breakaway from Cancer Champions will lead the Breakaway Mile, an approximately one-mile walk to celebrate cancer survivors that crosses the Amgen Tour of California finish line prior to the stage conclusion of the professional race. The Breakaway Mile will take place in five 2011 race host cities: North Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, Modesto, Paso Robles, and Thousand Oaks.  Each Breakaway Mile will also feature an Amgen scientist who plays a crucial role in developing breakthrough medicines.

At the conclusion of each stage of the Amgen Tour of California, the Breakaway from Cancer Champion or a local cancer survivor will present Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer Most Courageous Rider jersey to the professional rider who best exemplifies the character of those engaged in the fight against cancer—courage, sacrifice, inspiration, determination, and perseverance.

During the 2011 Amgen Tour of California, a local cancer survivor will officially start each day's stage by firing the official start gun. He or she will also have the opportunity to meet the prior day's recipient of Amgen's Breakaway from Cancer Most
