It was another fabulous turnout for the Cancer Support Center’s Walk of Hope on Sunday, Oct. 4.
More than 800 walkers covered a 1-, 3- or 5-mile track starting from Homewood’s Irwin Park. The cloudy skies and windy conditions couldn’t dampen their spirits.
The annual walk raises money to support the initiatives of the Cancer Support Center at 2028 Elm St. in Homewood and a second location in Mokena. This year walkers had pledges totaling approximately $85,000, according to Karen Horn, director of development. Donations are still coming in, so Horn expects that total to grow.
The Cancer Support Center assists those dealing with cancer as well as their family members who care for them. All services are free. For additional information, contact the Cancer Support Center at 708-798-9171.
