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.

NEWS & UPDATES
  • Preparing a Thanksgiving meal is a huge responsibility, not just in terms of taste and presentation, but also in terms of food safety. Special care must be taken when handling, assembling and cooking the feast  – and this is never more true than when your guests will include immunosuppressed patients, such as c...
  • Celebrating the holidays with family and friends can be festive, but most of us definitely overeat. The average Thanksgiving meal is close to 3,000 calories – well above the average daily recommendation of 2,000 calories. Here, we serve up some tips from City of Hope dietitians Dhvani Bhatt and Denise Ackerman ...
  • A healthier Thanksgiving doesn’t have to mean a big plate of raw carrots and kale – not that there’s anything wrong with that. Instead, it can amount to a small change here, a small change there, and maybe a tweak beyond that. Dietitians at City of Hope, which promotes a healthful lifestyle as a way...
  • Joselyn Miller received a lifesaving bone marrow transplant at City of Hope two years ago. Here, she reflects on her gratitude as a bone marrow recipient and on giving back. By Joselyn Miller thank•ful adjective  \ˈthaŋk-fəl\ :  conscious of benefit received :  glad that something has happened or not happened, ...
  • When it comes to cancer, your family history may provide more questions than answers: How do my genes increase my risk for cancer? No one in my family has had cancer; does that mean I won’t get cancer? What cancers are common in certain populations and ethnicities? City of Hope experts have some guidance. “Your...
  • The body’s immune system is usually adept at attacking outside invaders such as bacteria and viruses. But because cancer originates from the body’s own cells, the immune system can fail to see it as foreign. As a result, the body’s most powerful ally can remain largely idle against cancer as the disease progres...
  • On Jan. 1, 2015, five City of Hope patients who have journeyed through cancer will welcome the new year with their loved ones atop City of Hope’s Tournament of Roses Parade float. The theme of the float is “Made Possible by HOPE.” The theme of the parade is “Inspiring Stories.” Her...
  • Are you thinking about switching from traditional cigarettes to e-cigarettes for the Great American Smokeout? Are you thinking that might be a better option than the traditional quit-smoking route? Think again. For lung expert Brian Tiep, M.D., the dislike and distrust he feels for e-cigs comes down to this: Th...
  • Hematologist Robert Chen, M.D., is boosting scientific discovery at City of Hope and, by extension, across the nation. Just ask the National Cancer Institute. The institution recently awarded Chen the much-sought-after Clinical Investigator Team Leadership Award for boosting scientific discovery at City of Hope...
  • Great strides have been made in treating cancer – including lung cancer – but by the time people show symptoms of the disease, the cancer has usually advanced. That’s because, at early stages, lung cancer has no symptoms. Only recently has lung cancer screening become an option. (Read more about the risks...
  • Identifying cures for currently incurable diseases and providing patients with safe, fast and potentially lifesaving treatments is the focus of City of Hope’s new Alpha Clinic for Cell Therapy and Innovation (ACT-I). The clinic is funded by an $8 million, five-year grant from the California Institute for Regene...
  • Cancer is a couple’s disease. It affects not just the person diagnosed, but his or her partner as well. It also affects the ability of both people to communicate effectively. The Couples Coping with Cancer Together program at City of Hope teaches couples how to communicate and solve problems as a unit. He...
  • Chemotherapy drugs work by either killing cancer cells or by stopping them from multiplying, that is, dividing. Some of the more powerful drugs used to treat cancer do their job by interfering with the cancer cells’ DNA and RNA growth, preventing them from copying themselves and dividing. Such drugs, however, l...
  • During October, everything seems to turn pink – clothing, the NFL logo, tape dispensers, boxing gloves, blenders, soup cans, you name it – in order to raise awareness for what many believe is the most dangerous cancer that affects women: breast cancer. But, in addition to thinking pink, women should...
  • In February 2003, when she was only 16 months old, Maya Gallardo was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and, to make matters much worse, pneumonia. The pneumonia complicated what was already destined to be grueling treatment regimen. To assess the extent of her illness, Maya had to endure a spinal ...
