13th Annual Stepping Up to Wellness Run/Walk
Welcome to the 13th Annual Stepping Up to Wellness Run/Walk!
Join us on April 30, 2017 for a fun-filled morning at the beautiful Independence Grove Forest Preserve in Libertyville as you support the life-changing work of the Cancer Wellness Center!
SIGNING UP IS EASY!
Register as an individual walker or runner, join an existing team, or create a team of your own. (See more about creating your own team below!) All registered participants receive a dri-fit t-shirt and all ages are welcome to participate in the family walk.
Upon registration, a personal fundraising page will automatically be created for you. Customize your page with photos and your personal story as to why the Cancer Wellness Center has made a difference in your life or the life of someone you love. Then, share your page with everyone you know on social media. You can also send emails to friends and family, asking them to support your run/walk and the FREE programs and services at the Cancer Wellness Center!
CREATE A TEAM
Grab your friends, co-workers, and family and start a team. Better yet, invite your book or wine club, synagogue/church group, scout troop, or fantasy football crew—the point is, get everyone together to come out and have fun, while raising much needed funds for the Cancer Wellness Center! Our goal for the event is 65 teams in 2017 – please help us hit that milestone!
CAN'T ATTEND THE EVENT?
Not a problem! You can still make a difference in the lives of those facing cancer by making your own donation to the event.
