Join us on our Journey to a Million!
Throughout the month of September (National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month), we’re going the distance to find a cure for all childhood cancers through Alex’s Million Mile – Run. Walk. Ride. If you’ve already signed up – thank you! If not, there’s plenty of time to join us. You can register to participate at any time and be a part of this global event where participants are collectively running, walking and/or riding 1 million miles. That’s a long way, but the way we see it, a parent of a child with cancer would go that far (and then some) to find a cure.
1 month, 1 cause, 1 million miles...
Kids with cancer need your help!
- Who can participate? Alex’s Million Mile – Run.Walk.Ride is a collective effort of supporters across the globe. Anyone can join and fight childhood cancer! You can run, walk, or bike your miles, or do a combination, anytime during the month of September.
- Do I have to do this myself? Nope, you can choose to participate individually or you can start or join a team for added fun and motivation.
- How many miles do we have to complete? There is no requirement for the amount of miles you or your team (collectively) complete. Every step counts!
- Why are you doing this? One million miles is 40 times around the equator or two round-trips to the moon. But it’s only 76 miles for each kid or adolescent who will be diagnosed with cancer this year in the United States alone. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the United States. That’s why it is vital that we raise money to cure it, now.
