Team CEH Moving 4 Cancer Prevention

Hello Friends, Family & Colleagues, As staff at the Center for Environmental Health and members of the Cancer Free Economy Network, we are moving our bodies around Oakland's Lake Merritt on Thursday May 4th to raise money for CFE so that we can continue to collaborate with allies across the country to get toxic chemicals out of the food we eat, the air we breath, the water we drink, and the communities where we live, work, and play. Please support us!
Goal $1,000.00
44.5% towards our goal

Great job!!!

Leading scientists, researchers, and health professionals have sounded the alarm that toxic chemicals in our air, food, water, buildings and the products we use every day are increasingly making us sick and causing cancers. These toxic chemicals are especially concentrated in Black, Brown, Indigenous and People of Color’s (BIPOC) neighborhoods and communities. Children are at higher risk due to their rapidly developing bodies. There is a long list of known and probable carcinogens in our environments. Together, we can raise awareness across the country that many cancers can be prevented by getting rid of toxic chemicals in the places we live, learn, work and play, and in the products we use every day.


Team CEH is helping CFE reach its goal to move 600 miles and raise $32,000 – enough to fully fund CFE’s Emerging Leaders Cohort, which supports early-career Black, Brown, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC) leaders and leaders from impacted communities through mentorship, workshops, and collaborative leadership experience, as well as contribute to CFE’s coordinated response to support community needs in the wake of Ohio's toxic train wreck. 


Together, we can move towards a healthier future for all! Donate to the Team CEH page to support this important work, and learn more at
