Annual Cancer Survivors' Celebration Walk & 5K Announced for May 31
Northwestern Memorial Hospital April 22, 2015
The 22nd annual Cancer Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5K is expected to draw more than 4,000 participants, bringing cancer survivors, caregivers, families and friends together with the health care professionals who support them every step of the way. Filled with music, a picnic, entertainment, t-shirts, family-friendly activities, the event will also provide an opportunity to sign the survivorship dedication wall.
Participants who would like to support the Lurie Cancer Center’s mission to overcome cancer have the option to create a personalized, online fundraising page or to join a fundraising team when registering. All funds raised will directly benefit vital cancer research to help develop more effective cancer therapies, and train the next generation of physicians and scientists. Donations will also help support the Lurie Cancer Center’s cancer survivorship and supportive oncology programs at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, which are dedicated to improving the lives of patients and families.
Fundraising is voluntary and no minimum donation is required. The physicians, researchers and health professionals of the Lurie Cancer Center and Northwestern Medicine® are committed to providing high-quality cancer care in the battle to overcome this devastating disease.
Advance registration for the walk is $15 online or at a wide range of city and suburban locations through May 29. Registration for the 5K run is $35 before May 1, and $40 before May 29. Registration on the day of the event will be $25 for the walk and $50 for the 5K run. Space is limited for the 5K and advance registration is highly recommended.
