Walk of Hope raises nearly $80,000 for The Cancer Support Center

The field was soggy from rain the past several days, but spirits were high and dry as the Walk of Hope walkers congregated at Irwin Park in Homewood on Sunday morning. Cancer Support Center Executive Director Sue Armato said 630 walkers raised more than $78,000 to support the center's mission of providing support to area cancer victims.

Every Walk of Hope participant can make the front page

There’s a chance that 1,000 area residents will wind up on the front page of the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle. The Chronicle, a sponsor of the Cancer Support Center’s Walk of Hope on Sunday, has created a special “selfie frame” that looks like a page from Homewood-Flossmoor’s local newspaper.
