Miles for Tuesday
conquering kids cancer by the mile
Miles for Tuesday is comprised of runners and cyclists of all experience levels with one common goal…participating in local events to raise funds in support of kids battling cancer at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Miles for Tuesday was named in honor of Tuesday Whitt from Parker, CO who lost her battle to neuroblastoma at the age of 2, and whose courageousness has inspired so many. It’s our hope through “Miles for Tuesday” that we can significantly contribute to the ongoing care and whole family wellness program that is provided by one of the nation’s best centers for treating childhood cancer.
Since 2009 runners and cyclists have been joining Miles for Tuesday, and have collectively raised over $125,000 for Children’s Hospital Colorado Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in memory of Tuesday Whitt.
