Tuesday Morning #StopCancer Walk, Manhattan Beach

Cancer hates a healthy body! Walking is easy cancer prevention.

Cancer cells thrive on a weak immune system and chronic inflammation. Being fit reduces inflammation and improves your immune system. So, if you are a cancer survivor or simply someone who wants to lower your cancer risk, you need to get moving so you can #stopcancer. Walking is really easy cancer prevention.

There are lots of ways to get exercise, but one of the simplest is just walking.

The Cancer Journeys Foundation hosts morning walks along the Pacific Ocean beginning at the pier in Manhattan Beach, California, every Tuesday and Sunday morning.

The Tuesday walk normally begins at 6:00 am and the Sunday walk begins at 6:30 am. But Tuesday October 17th we’re going a bit later. See the time below.

Each walk lasts an hour – 30 minutes out and 30 minutes back, but you turn around and shorten the walk if you need to.

Our “Manhattan Beach Ramble” is part of our #stopcancer program for 2017.

We hope to see you there! You’ll love it!

Remember: the goal is to #stopcancer.

See you there!

Cancer Hates a Healthy Body – So, Let’s Just Do IT®

We all know Nike’s famous slogan to get off the couch and do something. That slogan is especially appropriate for cancer survivors because diet and exercise are the two key factors that every cancer survivor controls.

Cancer hates a fit body because a fit body has an active immune system that works 24 x 7 to keep cancer cells from developing and spreading.


Walking is the easiest and least expensive exercise program you can find. All you need to do is to put on your most comfortable shoes – other than those cushy slippers – and head out the door.

It’s always easier to walk with someone else. So, we’re creating walking events where cancer survivors can meet, walk, and inspire each other.


It seems that every health commercial you see on television shows someone bicycling. And for good reason. Almost all of us learned to bicycle at an early age. Bicycling is easy, pretty inexpensive [we’ll show you how in another post], and a great way to see some scenery as you get in those exercise minutes.

Virtually every community has a local bicycle shop that would love to connect you with a local bicycle club that will be delighted to welcome you aboard and get you started.

Health officials are encouraging staying in during the early COVID-19 period (we are writing this in early May 2020) so we are creating a weekly program of indoor cycling using the Zwift indoor cycling app.  Please check our event schedule for our weekly ride.

Stay well!
