What: The Cancer Event to Remember is a virtual exercise challenge that honors cancer survivors and memorializes our loved ones who are no longer with us.


Fundraising: 100% of the funds raised for this event will go directly to the The Robert and Marjorie Goodson Oncology Wellness Program at the EAMC Spencer Cancer Center. This program provides exercise training and massage therapy to patients who undergo treatment at the Spencer Cancer Center. The program provides comfort and improved health outcomes to our patient population.


How "Exercise to Remember" Works: Determine how many minutes you will commit to exercising in the month of October. Exercise can include walking, swimming, riding a bike, working out in a gym, etc. The time options are 300, 600, or 1000 minutes for the month. The goal is to spend your time exercising honoring and remembering loved ones who have been effected by a cancer diagnosis. You will be able to log your exercise minutes directly with Run Sign Up after you register.


Facebook Group & Live Exercise Classes: We have created a closed Facebook group (check out "The Cancer Event to Remember" or click this link where you can post your updates and express who you honored with your exercise minutes each day! As an added bonus, we will be offering Facebook Live classes (schedule below) on this group page for anyone who would like to participate. Each day, we will have different honorees posted on the Facebook group and mentioned in the exercise classes!

HIIT with Emily: Mondays 10AM

We will mail residual packets to anyone who registers and does not pick up their packet. Please be advised, we will mail the packet to the address submitted on the Run Sign Up page, unless notified otherwise.


In Memory: The organizers would like to commemorate Hanna Geisler, our colleague who was to become a Cancer Exercise Trainer at EAMC. We lost a huge cancer patient advocate when Hanna was taken from us this summer.
