If you’ve been following us for a while, you are well aware of the fact that we hate cancer, pediatric cancer, in particular. You also know that we are big supporters of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a foundation dedicated to raising funds for research to eradicate childhood cancers. Because seriously, who doesn’t hate cancer?
September kicks off their annual Alex’s Million Mile (#AMM) Event where we run, walk, and bike while raising money for cancer research.
We LOVE this event because we get to raise money and awareness while running. It makes running fun.
No, that’s a lie.Running will never be FUN.
But #AMM does make routine runs more meaningful. Us Chicks are eager to get started, so we’re launching our team today by telling cancer to go suck the big fat (yellow) one.
Everyone is doing it! Jenn’s mileage goal is 80 miles in September.
If you hate cancer too and like to win cool stuff, take the Lemon-face Challenge and Join Team Scootadoot!
After you join the Team, Facebook, Tweet or Instagram a photo or video of your best lemon-sucking face, let us know your mileage goal, and tag it with #Journey2aMillion and #lemonfacechallenge , we’ll enter you in a drawing for a great prize!
We’ve got goodies from FitBit, iTunes, Another Mother Runner, SkirtSports, and RaceDots (to name a few), and we’ll be giving out prizes to Team Members throughout September!
Recruit your friends to join the team with this QR code which links to our team fundraising page. How slick is that?
Let’s show cancer what us running folk can accomplish. Go suck a lemon and help us fight back!
