Check out each of the fun opportunities our team has prepared for you to have fun, support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and adhere to the social distancing recommendations in place this spring!
Socially Distanced Fun Opportunities
Emily and team ask that all who consider the activities here, do so in accordance with the CDC social distancing guidelines, or any stronger guidance or rule in place in your state. Preventing the spread of Covid-19 is essential, especially to protect the health of those we are fighting for in this campaign – cancer patients! All activities on this page can be enjoyed by an individual or an immediate/home family/roommate group!
Run it | Bike it | Walk it | Hike it! Get competitive, or enjoy activity leisurely. This event is for EVERYONE – all activity levels and all ages. Get active in the fight against cancer. Everyone WINS when Cancer LOSES!
How? Choose your distance and activity, then join the community of active supporters. Our event date is Saturday May 30 at 9am. While we will love to know our team of supporters all over are engaging in activity “together,” your “rain” date can be scheduled as you need to. Just get out there and go after your goal – any date or time!

There are two types of Adventures: Eye Spy Adventures and Scavenger Hunts. Eye Spy Adventures contain 20-30+ pictures that are generally a piece of what you see, such as a part of a sign, and you hunt for the rest! The series identifies where the photos were taken, such as a park or an area of downtown.
Scavenger Hunts are hunts designed to make you think – clues written that you have to figure out! Photograph yourself at the various places to show you got it!
Eye Spy Adventures
Eye Spy Adventures are designed to engage all ages. Because we want them to be fun for kids and adults, we have picked locations where there is NOT a playground next to or within the area of the adventure. Emily is a mother to 3 young children, the youngest is only 3.5; she knows firsthand the struggle to get out to move while trying to explain why the playground is off-limits!
**Check back often! These are a growing opportunity and more will be added as demand supports them!
