Your inherent reward is that you are improving yourself while supporting those in need of food. All challenges (except the Family category) will also receive a limited edition Canyon to The Coast Challenge T-Shirt - unisex OR female-specific. In addition, all will receive a gorgeous Custom Medal to proudly display your accomplishment. And each challenger will receive a virtual challenge bib that can be downloaded from the race page, participation in an active leaderboard, live map tracking along our course and a digital finisher's certificate with all your stats! We will also be promoting random prizes throughout the challenge to help make it more fun - and keep you more connected with other participants!

 

When will my shirt, medal and sticker be mailed to me?

We will start processing your race packet once registration for your wave closes (one month after the wave starts).  It usually takes between 8-10 weeks from that date to receive your packet.  

***We have been experiencing some delays in getting our supplies. Please have patience at this time, as you may receive your items beyond the 8-10 weeks***

How does the charity component work?

100% of all donations go directly to Friends of Cathryn Foundation - and straight to fund pediatric cancer research.

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.
