How far would you go for childhood cancer? Would you help us on this journey to one million miles this September?
Each September, ALSF hosts Alex’s Million Mile, a month-long fundraising event that builds awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Last year, more than 15,000 people logged miles and raised money for childhood cancer research. Everyone can make the most of their steps (and miles!) in September by running, walking and biking to collectively exceed one million miles!
This summer, we are making a video public service announcement to spread the word and get more people to join us on the Alex’s Million Mile journey and we need your help!
Send us a 15-30 second video clip and let us know how far you would go for a cure for childhood cancer. Tell us why Alex’s Million Mile is important to you—and how you plan to help go one million miles in September!
Winners will have their video clip featured in the PSA and receive a special, limited edition 2016 Alex’s Million Mile t-shirt!
Ready to go? Here’s what you need to:
- Create your video. Selfie videos are encouraged!
- Post your video on our ALSF Facebook page or e-mail the video to [email protected]
Childhood cancer heroes and their families often travel hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles to receive treatment. Check out how far these children traveled! How far will you go?
Hero Kaela Cruz lost her leg to osteosarcoma when she was just 5 years old. But nothing stops Kaela! She is a tri-athlete, a pianist and an amazing girl who inspires everyone she meets!
SuperSib and Alex’s Million Mile participant Meg Schwehm finished her first half marathon in 2:22, just one week before her 8th birthday. Meg runs for her little sister Morgan who is 5 years old and is currently in remission from stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma. When approached about running a half marathon, Meg’s father Jeremy told her that it would be too hard. Meg said that if Morgan could go through two years of treatment, she could run 13 miles.
