October 20, 2021: This year, besides the virtual walk/run that can be completed and results submitted anytime up to and including 11/6/21, we will have a post-event celebration at the Deer Grove East Shelter, Picnic Grove #4 in Palatine, IL on Saturday, November 6 from 10AM to 12PM. All are welcome. You can enter from W Dundee Rd, just west of N Hicks Rd, Cook County, IL 60074. Parking is available. This event is to celebrate lung cancer survivorship and to remember those lost to lung cancer. There will be a brief talk by a lung cancer survivor and his daughter who supported him through diagnosis and treatment, followed by a 1 mile memorial walk along the path and a raffle. There will be music, and COVID-friendly snacks and hot cocoa. Event T-shirts and finisher’s medals can be picked up at the event. If you are not planning on attending, your T-shirts and medals will be available for pickup at the hospital or can be mailed. Please RSVP by 11/2/21 for this event on 11/6 with number attending to firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who have lost someone to lung cancer, you can create a memorial sign to post along the walk with an 18 x 24 inch yard sign. If you plan to do this, contact me, I can provide blank signs which need to be turned in the day before the event.

August 12, 2021 – You might have noticed, we made a change in the event to extend it to November 6, 2021. Please sign up by October 1, 2021 in order to get an event T-shirt since we need time to order and print the shirts to have them for the 11/6/21 post-event celebration.
August 2, 2021 – After much deliberation considering the uncertainty of the times due to the pandemic, we will once again hold a virtual event. Registration is open at RunSignup.
