Lace up your sneakers, strap on those skates, pump up those tires, and join fellow Steiner Electric employees who have pledged to go the distance at the American Cancer Society’s 46th annual Walk & Roll fundraising event.
Come out and help raise dollars used to fund lifesaving research and the free programs and services offered to cancer patients and survivors. If you can’t make the event, show your support by pledging funds online. Your dollars, no matter the amount, can make a big difference. Currently, Steiner has several folks who have made a pledge, and, as a group, Steiner is nearing its goal of raising $5,000.
Pledge with the Steiner Team
This year, the event kicks off at 8:30am and routes begin at 10am on April 22 from Soldier Field, and participants can enjoy the lakefront view as they walk or run a 5k, skate in a 10k, or bike a 15k race. There will also be live music and entertainment.
General registration is $15, but kids 17 and under can participate for free. This fee will be credited towards the fundraiser to help raise awareness and find a cure for cancer. As an extra incentive for donating, each person that raises $100 will receive a free, long-sleeve performance t-shirt. Pledge larger amounts, and earn even more valuable awards.
Check-in on the day of the event begins at 8:30am at the Packet Pick-Up Tent on Soldier Field’s Stadium Green. Early packet pickup is available on Friday, April 21, from 4pm-7pm, at the DICK’S Sporting Goods store in Lincoln Park, 1538 N Clybourn Ave., Chicago.
