Join the Cancer Wellness Center in beautiful Independence Grove in Libertyville. Each Spring, Stepping up to Wellness unites over 1,000 people in the CWC community to raise funds for the Cancer Wellness Center’s FREE support, education, and wellness programs.
The event includes a 5K Run/Walk and a 1-Mile Family Walk, plus music and activities for children. Fundraising teams are allotted space at Independence Grove to gather, run or walk the event together.
Last year alone over 1,500 people walked through the doors of the Center seeking to transform the chaos and fear that comes with cancer into strength and hope. The Cancer Wellness Center helps people live better while living with cancer by providing support services, wellness programs, and educational resources. All programs and services are FREE of charge.
Our future is made possible by you. As the Cancer Wellness Center continues to see ever increasing numbers of patients and families, our abilities to meet those needs is is only constrained by the gifts we receive each year. Your donation is an investment in providing comfort, strength, and hope. With your support, the Center will continue to focus on improving the physical and emotional well-being of people affected by cancer.
