"Our Annual Community Event for Chicago"
Every year, the women of the Sisters Network Chicago Chapter get together and put on the Gift of Life Block Walk - a national Sisters Network project designed to present important information about breast cancer, early screening and self testing. Chicago continues the tradition by putting on its 2nd largest event of the year. More than 100 members, supporters, sponsors and friends make the annual trek in the Roseland area dissmenating information and seeking community involvement.
But the Gift of Life Block Walk is more than just a walk. With health screenings, exhibits, demonstrations, music, snack foods and fun - this annual project brings the community together in an effort to get the word out to as many people as possible.
Registration begins at 9am at the Roseland Community Hospital (45 West 111th Street, Chicago, IL 60628).
The walk begins at the Roseland Hospital at 10am and concludes at 11am. After the walkers return to the Roseland Community Hospital, the health fair begins from 11am until 2pm. The registration fee is $15.00 per person and everyone gets a Gift of Life Block Walk T-Shirt. Please feel out the registration form and turn it in on the day of the race. PLEASE REGISTER ON THE DAY OF THE WALK. Pre-registration has ended. PLEASE NOTE: All t-shirts sizes greater than 2x, there is an additional $1.00 fee.
