Now in its ninth year running, Fireflies West have raised over $1.2 million for City of Hope, a cancer treatment and research center in Southern California. Alex Candlish, VFX Artist, at The Mill LA, and Jamie Beckwith, Lead 2D Artist at The Mill Chicago, have taken the challenge this year, representing The Mill on the six day charity ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles in support of this very important cause. Mill+ also created the original animated film, 'A Journey to Hope', to help raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.
