For 20 years we have been amazed at the people who come out to the Care4 5K to share their stories, show support and embrace the energy of the cause. This year was different! We experienced the Care4 through your lens!
Thank you for all of the pictures you shared. And, there were many touching and meaningful videos too. We were so happy to see you embrace the virtual concept and to see how creative you got! There were walks at various locations: Riverwalk in McHenry, Veterans Acres, Emricson Park, and as far away as an Arizona State Park- just wow!
There were companies that rallied together like; SnapOn Crystal Lake, Ortho Illinois of Algonquin, CrossKicks Fitness in Algonquin and Read Between the Lynes in Woodstock (just to name a few). We were supported both near and far. You represented every town in McHenry County and we even welcomed a participant from far away Puerto Rico!
And, Doug Jackson of Woodstock Harley Davidson hosted a ride and 34 bikes joined in. There will be another ride in 2021 for the Care4 and we could not be more excited!
In total, there were 1,011 participants and together we raised $140,000 and counting!
More than 400 patients will benefit from your involvement and generosity. YOU have made it possible for them to remain healthy and vibrant by getting a screening, learning healthy lifestyle choices, and how to prevent breast cancer.
Thank you everyone!!!!
