Event founder and breast cancer survivor Nina Nisenholtz gets a hug from UCLA mascot Joe Bruin as tennis coordinator Rick Grant looks on at the ninth annual Westside Challenge to Beat Breast Cancer event at the UCLA Tennis Center on October 21. More than 70 players participated in the round-robin tennis tournament to raise funds for the Low-Cost Mammography Screening Program at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. Event organizers expected to raise more than $100,000 for the program, which provides affordable screening and, in some cases, diagnostic mammograms to uninsured or underinsured women in the community. photo by Thomas Neerken.
