Through this fitness challenge, we aim to raise awareness about lymphoma and to raise funds for lymphoma programs and resources. Participants are challenged to take 100,000 steps in honour of the 100,000 Canadians currently living with lymphoma. Prizes are available for those who take the most steps and for those who fundraise the most.

Participants have the option to register as either a lymphoma patient or community participant. Prizes are available for top racers in both registration categories. We ask that if you are undergoing treatment, are in recovery, or currently identify as a lymphoma patient in any way that you select this category. All other supporters are invited to register as community participants.
