43 Miles in 43 Days for the 43 Children Diagnosed Each Day
Challenge 43, CureSearch’s new virtual event, unites families, friends, and athletes from across the nation when we can’t all be together in person! Starting May 19, 2020 we will take on a 43 day, 43 mile challenge where every step brings us closer to cures for children’s cancer!
“This challenge came at the perfect time because I have been in the house too long and it’s time to get moving!” said CureSearch supporter, Jennifer Smith. The Florida-based author also emphasized the importance of this fun and innovative alternative to in-person walks with the reminder “more money need to be directed to childhood cancer research to find better safer treatments.”
Choose your own adventure: You can run, walk, hike, or even multi-task and binge a TV show on your choice of cardio machine – any method of logging miles works. Be sure to join us for our virtual kickoff party on May 18th and start your challenge! We’ll provide fun and inspiration over the 43 days and celebrate your accomplishments at our virtual finish line on June 30. Submit your final results to receive your finisher’s shirt, medal, and any prizes you’ve picked up along the way, and we will announce award winners on our website!
Challenge 43 can also be a jumping off point for you own personal challenge. We hope you’ll be inspired to hit your own workout goal, be the fastest finisher or log the most “extra miles for cures!” If you’re missing the camaraderie of your gym or running group, invite your running buddies, hiking club, extended family or high school track team to complete the miles together virtually. Want to get the kids moving? Take on this challenge as a family to stay active and give back together!
