Endurance Challenge


Join the Million Step Challenge and Walk to Give Summer Back to Children with Cancer! 

It is important to take care of our physical health and emotional wellbeing, and it is recommended that the average person takes 10,000 steps a day.

SunriseWALKS is challenging YOU to take one million steps in 100 days.

Not only will you feel good while participating in this challenge, but you will be doing good by helping to change the lives of hundreds of children impacted by pediatric cancer.

Here's how it works:
1. Join the Million Step Challenge by registering for SunriseWALKS.
2. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and networks that you are participating in the Million Step Challenge by using our sample language and graphic below.
3. Encourage them to join your team and/or make a donation to support your efforts! 
4. Track your steps over the course of 100 days! Visit your fundraising dashboard and click the "Million Step Challenge" tab to start tracking your steps today.
5. C
ontinuously share your fundraising and step progress with your networks. The more you share, the more you will inspire people to join your efforts or make a donation on your behalf!

Fundraising Ideas:
- Kick start your fundraising with a donation of you own.
- Ask someone to support you with a donation of $10.
​- Ask someone to support you with a pledge of $1.00 a day.
- Ask someone to donate $0.01 for every 100 steps you take.

Sample Messaging:
I have chosen to participate in the Million Step Challenge to raise critical funds to support Sunrise Day Camps - the world's only full-summer day camps for children with cancer and their siblings, offered free of charge. My goal is to pound the pavement and achieve 1,000,000 steps in 100 days. I’ve got the sneakers and the water, and now I need your support to supply the fuel.

Here are two ways you can support me: 
1.  Join my team [insert team page link] and take the challenge with me by walking 1,000,000 steps in 100 days!
2. Make a donation to support me and children with cancer by clicking [insert fundraising link]!

Please help me make every step and dollar count! I walk so they can soar!
