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
  • Genetics, genes, genome, genetic risk … Such terms are becoming increasingly familiar to even nonresearchers as studies and information about the human make-up become more extensive and more critical. At City of Hope, these words have long been part of our vocabulary. Researchers and physicians are studyi...
  • Mammograms are currently the best method to detect breast cancer early, when it’s easier to treat and before it’s big enough to feel or cause symptoms. But recent mammogram screening guidelines may have left some women confused about when to undergo annual testing. Here Lusi Tumyan, M.D., chief of t...
  • Although chemotherapy can be effective in treating cancer, it can also exact a heavy toll on a patient’s health. One impressive alternative researchers have found is in the form of a vaccine. A type of immunotherapy, one part of the vaccine primes the body to react strongly against a tumor; the second part dire...
  • The breast cancer statistic is attention-getting: One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. That doesn’t mean that, if you’re one of eight women at a dinner table, one of you is fated to have breast cancer (read more on that breast cancer statistic), but it does mean that the ...
  • Rob Darakjian was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at just 19 years old. He began chemotherapy and was in and out of the hospital for four months. After his fourth round of treatment, he received a bone marrow transplantation from an anonymous donor. Today, he’s cancer free. In his first post, ...
  • Advanced age tops the list among breast cancer risk factor for women. Not far behind is family history and genetics. Two City of Hope researchers delving deep into these issues recently received important grants to advance their studies. Arti Hurria, M.D., director of the Cancer and Aging Research Program, and ...
  • City of Hope is extending the reach of its lifesaving mission well beyond U.S. borders. To that end, three distinguished City of Hope leaders visited China earlier this year to lay the foundation for the institution’s new International Medicine Program. The program is part of City of Hope’s strategi...
  • A hallmark of cancer is that it doesn’t always limit itself to a primary location. It spreads. Breast cancer and lung cancer in particular are prone to spread, or metastasize, to the brain. Often the brain metastasis isn’t discovered until years after the initial diagnosis, just when patients were beginning to ...
  • Blueberries, cinnamon, baikal scullcap, grape seed extract (and grape skin extract), mushrooms, barberry, pomegranates … all contain compounds with the potential to treat, or prevent, cancer. Scientists at City of Hope have found tantalizing evidence of this potential and are determined to explore it to t...
  • Most women who are treated for breast cancer with a mastectomy do not choose to undergo reconstructive surgery. The reasons for this, according to a recent JAMA Surgery study, vary. Nearly half say they do not want any additional surgery, while nearly 34 percent say breast cancer reconstruction simply isn’t imp...
  • The leading risk factor for breast cancer is simply being a woman. The second top risk factor is getting older. Obviously, these two factors cannot be controlled, which is why all women should be aware of their risk and how to minimize those risks. Many risk factors can be mitigated, and simple changes can lead...
  • All women are at some risk of developing the disease in their lifetimes, but breast cancer, like other cancers, has a disproportionate effect on minorities. Although white women have the highest incidence of breast cancer, African-American women have the highest breast cancer death rates of all racial and ethni...
  • First, the good news: HIV infections have dropped dramatically over the past 30 years. Doctors, researchers and health officials have made great strides in preventing and treating the disease, turning what was once a death sentence into, for some, a chronic condition. Now, the reality check: HIV is still a worl...
  • Screening for breast cancer has dramatically increased the number of cancers found before they cause symptoms – catching the disease when it is most treatable and curable. Mammograms, however, are not infallible. It’s important to conduct self-exams, and know the signs and symptoms that should be checked by a h...
