The First Mile: Go a Mile for Kids with Cancer!

To kick off The Million Mile, grab your teammates and do your first mile together! Make it fun! Run, walk or ride to your local bar and have a drink together to toast your efforts to fight childhood cancer. Don’t forget to take a team photo, post it on social and add #MillionMile.

The First Mile is a simple act – a team-building, awareness-raising experience to show the urgency to find safer treatments and more cures for childhood cancer.


  1. Sign up for The First Mile
  2. Get your Million Mile teammates together and invite others to join you. The First Mile is the perfect way to recruit last minute members to your team.
  3. Put on your team t-shirts or something gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (or yellow for Alex’s Lemonade) and run, walk or ride in your best childhood cancer awareness attire.
  4. Take photos of your First Mile moment and share them on social media. Use the hashtag - #MillionMile.
