We invite you to participate in a fun, challenging day of physical tests that will get you running, jumping, and throwing, all in the name of raising money for lifesaving cancer research and treatment. The D10 is a nationwide athletic tour that has raised $12 million for pediatric cancer research nationwide.

Competition in any shape or form builds relationships through camaraderie, and everyday, I use sports as a bridge to connect with patients at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, whether it be rejoicing about the Warriors upcoming 3-peat after signing DeMarcus Cousins, or shedding tears about who I benched in my fantasy football league. 

To work in the field of oncology, you have to have a positive outlook and enthusiasm with everything you do, and I bring this mindset every time I train for The D10, knowing that if I give anything less than my best, I sacrifice potential dollars that could have gone to this amazing cause–pediatric cancer research. This genuine motivation has pushed me through each and every workout, and I am excited to see how much I money I can raise while competing with my team, the Tumornators, on October 6th.

Jenna Howe
Registered Nurse, Pediatric Cancer unit

I'm 38 years old, and I have been engaged in fitness for most of my life. I have been a pediatric RN since 2005 and became a full time employee at Lucile Packard on the Pediatric Cancer unit in 2017. I am obsessed with facilitating the process of change. Whether I am in my scrubs or in my gym gear, I love watching people set goals and then crush them and challenge themselves to places where they can achieve things they never thought they could achieve. My goal in life is to facilitate changes through inspiring others, and being a positive role model. My athletic journey has helped inspire people around me, and I strive daily to assist others in their journey to fitness.

Administrative Associate

Being competitive has taught me a lot in other aspects of my life. Something I didn't realize would be a huge aspect of competing is the mental preparation to stay focused and to never give up. Some days you're motivated and some days you're not, but I think what matters is most is staying dedicated. I really enjoyed being a part of a group of like-minded individuals who are not only dedicated to their training, but also to a very worthy cause. It's a heartwarming feeling to be surrounded by hard working, giving people. 

Brandon Porter
Assistant Manager

Competitive athletics have always taught me that my biggest competitor will always be myself. Realistically there will always be someone faster or stronger; therefore, the importance isn’t in overcoming others but rather surpassing my own expectations. My takeaway from The D10 would be the importance of team building, self discipline, supporting others, and goal setting.
