To ensure summers are magical for these kids, JCC Chicago launched Sunrise Day Camp-Chicago last summer for children with a cancer diagnosis and their siblings, ages 3 1/2-16, completely free of charge for families. To raise awareness and much-needed funds, JCC Chicago is hosting the 2nd annual SunriseWALKS on October 15, 2023 at the Lake County JCC campus in Lake Zurich, IL.
People of all ages and abilities are welcome to join in this 1-mile walk, the campus opens at 8:30am with the Opening Ceremony at 10am 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 through which participants will help provide hope, fun, and a bit of normalcy to children whose lives have been affected by pediatric cancer. To register, visit: sunrise-walks.org/chicago.
