The 4x1200

The Run to the White House for Childhood Cancer awareness was created on the heels of the White House petition, that was signed by over 25,000 people to light up the White House "Gold" this September, in recognition of children fighting for their lives from this monster.

As people join together on this journey and donate their miles toward our destinations, we hope to compel others to run, walk and even observe all of the places we will visit along the way. As we travel through states, capitol cities and visit children's hospitals on this virtual tour, we hope that friends in those cities and towns will share the mission that we are on to reach the White House.

Since Childhood Cancer is the number 1 killer among kids, our reasons for running are far greater than just exercise. We want our country to know that our kids deserve better when it comes to funding research. Our nations leaders need to know, that among all of the other reasons to save children's lives in this day, a cure for children's cancer is a most important and urgent priority.

A little background for those of you who are new to my blog, my son Lincoln was diagnosed in 2011 at the age of 2 with ALL (leukemia) He is doing well today which gives me a lot of room to advocate on his behalf. Now that I am aware of how terrible childhood cancer is, I want to fight for all kids everywhere. My mission to cross the county by myself could not happen because of my son, but in a virtual effort we can all be a part of something great.

Now that we have over 250 people willing and ready to donate miles, we will move towards the road leading to the White House. We have completed 3 legs of this race that have led us to 3 west coast children's hospitals. Next we will take on 4 new maps that will all lead us to the Lincoln Highway, the first coast to coast highway for the automobile. It actually starts in San Francisco, but we will all be meeting in Cheyenne, Wyoming with over 1200 miles on each map. We will also start a new map in Texas with all of our new friends joining.

My hope is that parents with kids in the hospitals right now will also discover the journey we are on for them so they can check out our progress, giving them hope that all of us are on their side. Please share this event with your friends and family this year as we Run for the White House for Childhood Cancer.

Here are the maps I will share on the event page for the 4x1200
