"Our Annual Community Event for Chicago"
Every year, the women of the Sisters Network Chicago Chapter get together and put on the Gift for 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 to disseminate information and seeking community involvement. This year, the Sisters leave the traditional Roseland neighborhood and South Shore Hospital area to head to Zion Lutheran Church - this year's community focus.
But the Gift For 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 Zion Lutheran Church located at 8455 Stony Island in Chicago.
NOTE: The walk begins at Zion Lutheran Church at 10am and concludes at 11am. After the walkers return to the church, the health fair begins from 11am until 2pm. Pre-registration fee is $20.00 per person and everyone gets a Gift For Life Block Walk T-Shirt. Registration on site is $25.00 Please feel out the registration form and turn it in on the day of the race. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU REGISTER for the walk.
