Freedman Seating employees, friends and families will walk and raise funds to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and the American Cancer Society’s efforts to fight cancer.
St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is where doctors send their toughest cases, because it has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancer. Join us, and help the kids of St. Jude win the fight — we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
How your support helps St. Jude patients and kids all over the world:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
- Our research labs may not be in your community, but our discoveries are. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Making Strides of Chicago
Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we’ve decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.
Today 1 of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!
Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.
Join us and together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.
