This year’s Glow Run has a fun little twist to it. We are anticipating a tremendous response, so we need your participation, are you ready to Step Up to the challenge???
The Cassie Hines Shoes Cancer Foundation’s 9th Annual Virtual Glow Run will be a 10 million step challenge. Our 3-day theme is “helping young adults walking through survivorship, one step at a time”. During registration participants will be able to pledge how many total steps they plan on taking that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday combined. Updates to the progress towards the 10 million step goal will be posted daily at WWW.CHSCF.org
Why 10 million steps? Each year about 70,000 young adults ages 15-39 in the United States are diagnosed with cancer, in the last 50 years the survival rates for this group have NOT improved! We also decided to stretch out the Glow Run to 3 days this year to help create awareness for our mission; with those three numbers we came up with our goal. 70,000 young adults X 50 years X 3 days = 10.5 million steps! (Our PR Pro’s told us 10 Million steps sounds better, so we rounded down, you’re welcome!)
The weekend of the event, we will have a couple 5k courses marked at Baypoint Beach inside Stony Creek Metropark and the Iron Belle Trail starting at Jimmy John’s Field, Belfor right field gate. Feel free to take advantage of these two courses, or utilize your favorite route, or walk out your front door to achieve your step commitment; we’re on the honor system here, so what you commit to is considered done….
You can sign up as an individual, put together a team, walk, run, jog, it doesn’t matter. It’s easy, fun, and everyone can participate! And remember we are … “CHANGING LIVES, ONE STEP AT A TIME”!
