Making Strides of Champaign

On Saturday, October 18th, join the American Cancer Society at Meadowbrook Park for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K. The event is a great way to honor breast cancer survivors, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money for breast cancer research.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. on the day of the race, but you can also register before the event online. Early bird registration is $25 and same day registration is $35. You have the option to start a team, walk with an existing team, or walk as an individual.

If  you’d rather not run, consider volunteering! Volunteers are needed for registration, water stations, information and more. Learn further about the opportunities here.
