Coast to Coast Challenge Powered by Reach Athletes
No matter how you choose to get moving, you can join our virtual fitness challenge to go the distance for families facing both the financial burden of cancer and added setbacks of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to log a collective 10,000 miles from coast to coast, and we’re mapping our virtual route to pass through 56 of our partner hospitals across 31 states. We’ll need your help to reach all of them – are you up for the challenge?
Are you near our partner hospitals? Click around the interactive map to see!
Help us reach 10,000 miles pledged by July 31st!

Currently in active treatment, 17-year-old Quinn has been receiving chemotherapy since January. Prior to his diagnosis, Quinn’s mom was working full-time but she had to make the difficult decision to stop working to care for her son. With no income, she was then forced to move her family in with her parents to save on housing costs. Thanks to support from our LiFT Network member Anthony Rizzo Foundation, we were able to relieve some of her financial worries so she can focus on Quinn’s care.
