The coldest Cancer Survivors' Celebration Walk & 5K in 22 years was no match for the warmth and spirit in Chicago's Grant Park. Did we mention the rain? Or the wind? It didn't discourage the thousands of participants who gathered for the largest cancer survivorship celebration in the country!
WGN-TV News anchor and medical reporter, Dina Bair and lymphoma survivor Michael Cates, a coach for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults' Cancer to 5K Program, welcomed the 5K runners before joining the race! View 5K Race Results »
"Let's be clear — no rain can stop us!" said Leon Platanias, MD, PhD, before leading the countdown to launch the event. The Lurie Cancer Center's Director thanked the crowd for their generosity, partnership, and support of our initiatives to overcome cancer and "have more survivors every year."
