Cancer Walk Draws Nearly 3,500
Nearly 3,500 cancer survivors, friends, family members, and others touched by cancer participated in a National Cancer Survivors’ Day walk sponsored by the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University. The five-mile lakefront walk from downtown Chicago to McCormick Place and back drew such figures as Attorney General Jim Ryan and Lieutenant Governor Corinne Wood. Sunny skies and a full slate of family activities attracted children and adults alike. Participants received a T-shirt and refreshments and were entertained by such acts as the Jessie White Tumblers. Next year’s walk is scheduled for Sunday, June 1. For more information, contact the Cancer Center at 312/503-0760 or visit www.cancer.northwestern.edu .
