Walk, Run, & Bike to Support SU2C

Posted on January 16, 2013, 11:00 AM

January is halfway through! Are you sticking to your new year’s resolutions?

As you may already know, the most common resolutions of quitting smoking, getting fit, and spending more time with family and friends are all crucial to fighting cancer. Not giving up on your goals, even if you do slip up, is just as important. So even if you’ve skipped a workout day or two, don’t use it as an excuse to abandon ship.

Today’s focus is the “getting fit” part of many people’s resolutions. And if it’s not part of your resolutions, it should be. In addition to all the physical and emotional benefits of a regular exercise regimen, The National Cancer Institute points out strong evidence that physical activity is associated with reduced risk of colon and breast cancers, with several studies also reporting links between physical activity and reduced risk of endometrial, lung, and prostate cancers.

Need even more incentive to stick to your resolution of getting and staying fit? Now there are two ways your walking, running, and biking can support SU2C’s cutting-edge cancer research!

Team Stand Up To Cancer
Who can join Team SU2C? Anyone! Team SU2C is comprised of supporters like you. Simply pick any race in your community through which you’d like to raise funds for cancer research. Whether you’re walking a 5K, biking in a century race, or running a marathon for Team SU2C, your involvement enables collaboration among the best and the brightest in the cancer research community.

To join Team SU2C, sign up as an individual or form your own team with family, friends and co-workers. Registration is free. All you have to do is set up your own personalized fundraising page on Crowdrise through Team SU2C at crowdrise.com/standup2cancer. SU2C will provide you with a race team member toolkit, a list of races across the country, and promotions about and special deals on items in the SU2C shop and official race team gear.

Charity Miles App
We’re so grateful that Stand Up To Cancer is now included in the Charity Miles mobile application! To learn more about this free app and how you can support SU2C for every mile you run, walk or bike, click here www.charitymiles.org/.

Now, for your body’s sake, and to support the fight against cancer… get moving!
