JCC Chicago is hosting the 2nd annual SunriseWALKS on October 15, 2023, at the Lake County JCC campus in Lake Zurich, IL. SunriseWALKS is helping raise funds to help children with a cancer diagnosis and their siblings, ages 3 1/2 -16, to enjoy full summer day camp free of charge for families.
People of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in this 1-mile walk; the campus opens at 8:30 am with the Opening Ceremony at 10 am followed by a finish line carnival with games, prizes, refreshments and more. There are two courses available: a 1-mile unpaved nature trail and a ¼-mile paved course perfect for strollers. SunriseWALKS is a celebration of community and connectivity with a fundraising goal of $75,000. Registration is $18 for adults and $10 for children, and participants will help provide hope, fun, and a bit of normalcy to children whose lives have been affected by pediatric cancer.
