We’re coming up to our 15th year holding our incredible Cedars Dragon event, and we wanted to give you an update. As you are aware, the current pandemic has pushed schedules back. As an organization, we needed to make some informed, and sometimes difficult choices, and thanks to an adaptation to the “New Normal,” we have come up with some exciting solutions.
FL Fuller Landau, as our lead sponsor, continues to support our efforts. We cannot take a pause in cancer care. Cancer patients and their families are still facing challenges every day and we need your help to support them during their cancer treatment journey. All funds raised will support the Cedars CanSupport program which offers complimentary programs and services to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families.
Your support matters! We may not be able to gather in person this year, but coming together online with friends, family and corporate teams shows that we are still a united community. Your participation in our Virtual Challenge puts you on the front line of support for cancer patients when they are at their most vulnerable.
WHAT IS THE VIRTUAL CHALLENGE?
This year we are going to use an online platform to challenge you and your teammates. We have created 4 different options for you to choose from.
Teams and individuals will select a fitness challenge, will set a fundraising goal, and will have until September 12 to complete it. In the spirit of our Dragon races, we encourage all participants to exercise outside while maintaining a healthy distance from others.
This year we’re taking it to the streets, the bike paths, and the water to make a difference!
Step 1: Choose a challenge of your choice and create your own goal. ( Each team member can have a different challenge)
- Step Challenge (ex: 10,000 step challenge/per day)
- Walk / Run (ex: 5K, 10K, Half marathon)
- Cycling (ex. 10K, 20 K, 50K)
- Paddle Boarding
- A fitness challenge of your choice!
Let’s turn your physical activity into a challenge! As a team, create your goal and make it happen individually.
Step 2: Choose your fundraising goal and create your personal page!
Sign yourself up! On this website you will be given a team page and a personal page for the opportunity to tell your story and share with your family, friends and networking why you are choosing to participate. You can post images and provide up to date progress on your fundraising as well as provide your supporters with an easy way to donate to you and your team!
Step 3: Complete your challenge.
Spread the word!
Let your friends and family know how hard you are training, fundraising and recruiting for your team.
