At City of Hope, we know that exercise and a healthy lifestyle reduce the risks of cancer and diabetes because our scientists have seen it in their studies. The Foothill Fitness Challenge put that knowledge in motion – literally – by working with our neighboring cities to launch the pilot program throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Participants set fitness goals, tracked their progress, and monitored their results along the way.
 
EAT – MOVE – LIVE is the program's foundation. If you were among the 1,100 participants that joined us in October, you learned about activities that can make exercise more fun and took the challenge to:

Make healthy changes for longer lives and measure their progress toward those goals for the pilot’s three months.

Now we want to know how you did and how we did.

On the Foothill Fitness Cancellation

On the cancellation of the Wrap-Up Celebration for Foothill Fitness Challenge
Due to the ongoing concerns about the air quality conditions resulting from the Colby fire, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Saturday’s Foothill Fitness Challenge Wrap-Up Celebration.

City of Hope’s commitment to the health and well-being of our community – neighbors, supporters, our patients and their families – is of greatest importance to our institution.
Our thoughts are with those who have been personally impacted by this ongoing tragic event.

While forecasts indicate potential improvements in conditions by Saturday, out of an abundance of caution and concern for those planning to attend, we cannot in good conscience proceed with the event.
We are exploring alternative ways for participants to wrap up their Challenge participation and celebrate their success. Updates will be posted here.

In the meantime, stay focused on your health and fitness and be safe.
Thank you for taking the Foothill Fitness Challenge and for your continued support and understanding.
