Why 120 Miles?

There are over 120 different types of brain tumors, and the impact changes based on its location in or on the brain.  This makes each brain tumor journey unique.  With that in mind, you create your own journey in this 120-mile virtual challenge – any combination of walk, run, or bike, inside or out!  You choose the location and the time.  As you reach milestones, you will unlock facts about brain tumors and their impact.  

 

Collectively, We Are Stronger – Challenge Goals

  • 120 Intentional Acts of Kindness - The challenge is simple, perform a kind act during the challenge and add it to the overall tally.  You do not have to share what you did or who you did it for.  Just do it and see the ripple effect!

  • 18,600 Miles for 2021 Brain Tumor Angels -Let us honor the estimated 18,600 Brain Tumor Angels in 2021 by running one mile for each.  These are everyday people, just like you!  We can do this!  Every mile walked, ran, or bike will be included!      

If you know someone, you want us to honor on our Virtual Memorial Wall, please provide their names during registration.  If you want a photo to be included, email us at challenge@winksbt.org.    

Share your journey with us.  Join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/lovewinksTag photos #WINKSChallenge

All proceeds benefit WINKS, a registered 501(c)(3) all-volunteer nonprofit organization, working to enhance the quality of life for brain tumor patients and caregivers.
