Experience an epic challenge (virtually) from Sunrise Point at Bryce Canyon, through Zion National Park, the Valley of Fire, Las Vegas, all the way to Laguna Beach! This is a city-by-city expedition. Along the way, you will earn milestone badges for each major city/landmark you reach. Make no mistake, this virtual challenge will test you! But don't fret, as we will motivate you along the way!
All challengers receive a limited edition Canyon To The Coast Challenge T-Shirt, a gorgeous Finisher's Medal, a complimentary window sticker and a custom Pre-Race Bib, as well as Live Map Tracking of your progress, a Challenger's Leaderboard, a digital Finisher's Certificate with your stats and access to our Challenger's Community on Facebook.

You can join a challenge anytime, and we will relaunch the challenge the 15th of each month. You will have six months to complete the 600 or 350 miles.
You can set your goal to move as few as 14 miles per week or challenge yourself to cover as many as you can - be sure to pace yourself! We will help you total up your distance and track your progress with our online progress tracking platform.
These challenges are simple:
1. Do what you want to do, when you want to do it, from wherever you are (run, walk, bike, etc as few as 14 miles per week)!
2. Connect and track your progress on our race page and connect on our facebook group!
3. Get your limited edition Canyon To The Coast Challenge T-Shirt, Challenger Medal and more!

The reality is, without philanthropic donations from individuals and organizations like FRoC, research for children’s cancer would be abysmally funded. The facts are that there are more breast cancer, melanoma, prostate cancer and other “adult” cancer drugs funded because there are more of these cancers than there are cancers common to children. A drug company reaches a larger patient population (and makes more money) when they develop a drug for “adult” cancers. Thankfully, the rates of survival for these cancers have moved in the right direction but it has left a gap in the funding for children’s cancers. That leaves us, those advocating for children’s cancers, to fight for dollars to fund the most impactful therapies for kids.
The other challenge is to fund the research, not the organization giving to the research. We have no overhead thus, when you donate to FRoC, 100% of your donation goes straight to our mission. You can learn more about the team at Friends of Cathryn Foundation at www.FROCS.org.
