One Month Till the Team LIVESTRONG Challenge Philly


One hundred percent of the dollars you raise goes to support life-impacting programs and services like our LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Center which can help people face a multitude of concerns that arise from a cancer diagnosis. Gabriel, for example, turned to us for information on obtaining health insurance. Check out his inspiring story:

When it comes down to it, we all respond well to challenges, just like Gabriel. One month before our 2012 Team LIVESTRONG Challenge Philly kicks off, more than 3,100 participants have raised more than $840,000. But, we have some ground to gain on our goals of 4,100 participants and $2.5 million dollars raised.

Will you join us and register for the 2012 Team LIVESTRONG Challenge Philly?

On August 17-19, we?re coming back to the Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, PA for another wonderful weekend of camaraderie, physical achievement, and community support. Participate in our family friendly 5K or 10K walk/run events or take on one of our cycling options; we have three distance choices which offer something for all ages and experience levels. And if you?re up for a real challenge, participate in the walk/run on Saturday and a cycling event on Sunday.

We have to make some significant changes to the course this year as a result of local construction, so be on the lookout for more information to come regarding our cycling options.

Also this year, we’re introducing a rider tracking app that will be available to download for iPhone, iPad, Android and as a mobile website. We recommend sharing this app with friends and family?not only will they be able to track your progress out on the course, but the app also includes information about the event. We’ll share the details on how to download the app in upcoming participant emails, but get stoked.

We?re as excited as ever for the event this year, and if you?re not already signed up, I hope you?ll join us. Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions.
