3 Ways to Roll!
We love this slogan and are thrilled to be a part of one of the largest fundraising events to fight cancer around: The American Cancer Society’s Walk and Roll April 26th. We have been a part of this event for the past 3 years with the Chicago Electrical Industry Community Outreach program. We, along with 24 other companies that are part of CEI have helped raise nearly $500,000 for the American Cancer Society and are very excited for this year’s event.
Cancer touches everyone. Most people can say they have known someone who has battled; from parents to grandparents to siblings, neighbors and friends. The work the American Cancer Society does with the money from this event is staggering. Most of the money raised from this event and others like it across the country goes directly to research; scientists and doctors gaining a better understanding of what causes cancer to form, how to battle it and, in the end, prevent it.
According to the American Cancer Society, more than one million people get cancer each year. Did you know the Society also helps cancer warriors and their families deal with the unexpected? From risk to diagnosis to treatment, money raised benefits everyone who finds themselves fighting cancer.
All it takes is a few hours on a Saturday – a bit of exercise and plenty of fun with thousands of your Chicagoland friends! We hope to see you there!
