The Christmas Without Cancer 5K Run on September 29 was a huge success. Hundreds of runners and volunteers came out to support the organization. PLUS member volunteers acted as street marshals, blocking off the streets from traffic, as well as cheerleaders for the runners along the way. Several PLUS members were stationed at the finish line to congratulate the runners and provide achievement medals.
At this event, a check for $6,000 was presented to Christmas Without Cancer from the PLUS Foundation. Christmas Without Cancer is a charitable organization that provides gifts and basic necessities throughout the year to Chicago area families with members stricken with cancer.
Thank you to the Chapter and everyone who volunteered for this great event!
