Grounds of Hamilton Lakes 500 Park Blvd, Itasca, IL

This is the fifth year CDH will be participating in the Relay For Life of Itasca Corporate Event.

The CDH Crusaders team has a goal of $10,000 that we hoping to raise for the American Cancer Society.

CDH is planning a lot of great fundraising activities in months leading up to the Relay for Life date, as well as the day of. And we hope to have many individual team members working to raise money for this great cause.

This will be my third year helping the CDH Crusaders make a difference. I have participated in Relay For Life for many years before this as it is a cause close to my heart. When I learned that CDH is very active in its participation with the event I was more than willing to do my part to help.

Several of my family members like so many others have had or do have cancer. Many have won the fight thanks to the improvements in treatments due to research funded by organizations such as the American Cancer Society. Some have lost the fight as there is still so much research to be done. And some are still fighting. A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join your community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing the disease

This year I participate for my brother who has finished his second battle with cancer. He is now 2 years cancer free. We are hopeful that he will continue to be successful in his fight. We are grateful for the advances in treatments that have been developed. We appreciated all that his doctors do. And we are amazed by his will, strength and determination. I was so happy he was able to attend the event last year and participate on the CDH team.

We’ve all been affected by cancer in some way and you too can make a difference with a donation to help in the fight.
