Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

I am writing on behalf of the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” of Chicago 5k Walk, hosted by your American Cancer Society on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Soldier Field. This event raises awareness and funds for breast cancer. MSABC of Chicago brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups, and more. The purpose is to:

• celebrate survivors

• remember those that have been lost to breast cancer

• provide encouragement and strength to the newly diagnosed

• raise funds for innovative research and free programs to cancer patients and families

We are hoping that you will make an announcement of our free event and assist us raise donations and participation. Donations of cash or check help us to designate funds to priority areas. Donations of good, services, or gift cards help us motivate participants to raise funds. We hope that you can help us with this important work.

Please note, you can also help us fight cancer by:

1. registering free for the walk:
2. volunteering with us throughout the year or on the day of the walk

3. hosting a breast cancer lunch and learn for your staff and employees

4. using our Spot Hero discount parking code: NOMORECANCER (you receive 5% off of already discounted parking throughout Chicago, and American Cancer Society receives $1. This is a one-time use code that you are welcome to share).

Thank you for your favorable consideration. If you have questions or need additional information, I can be reached at 312-279-7277 or Blessings.
