The 19th Annual Cancer Survivors’ Celebration & Walk is the Lurie Cancer Center’s tribute to cancer survivors, and the strides we are making in cancer treatment and research.
The non-competitive walk begins in Grant Park at the corner of Columbus and Balbo Drives and continues along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront. This community awareness event is expected to draw close to 4,000 participants—bringing together cancer survivors, family and friends with the physicians, scientists and health professionals who support them.
The celebration starts a little earlier than in previous years, beginning at 7:30 a.m. with the Walk stepping off at 8:30 a.m. The entire morning is filled with festivities for the family including, a picnic, music, entertainment, an opportunity to sign the Dedication Wall and more. No pledges are required to be part of this extraordinary and meaningful celebration.
