Chicago event directors aim to educate patients

When Candice Washilewski and Patti McGrath started Get Your Rear in Gear – Chicago they were very selective as to where the funds raised would go. They wanted the money raised at the event to make the biggest impact possible on their community.

At the Chicago 5K Run/Walk this fall, Washilewski and McGrath made a donation to the Adventist Cancer Institute. The grant will be used to support treatment and education of colon cancer patients and cover the cost of a nurse navigator and educational materials.

Chicago-My-Suburban-LifeIn January, MySuburbanLife.com in Chicago’s western suburbs wrote a story about the race and the donation to the Institute. The story outlines the history of the Get Your Rear in Gear event in Chicago, as well as the importance of colon cancer screening and education efforts for the area.

Congratulations to Candice and Patti on the difference you are making in your community!
