Rally in Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire for a fight against cancer

 


Community members joined together in a peaceful rally that is trying to depict what can happen when we band together for a cause. When everyone works toward a cause the impact can be tremendous. This is what this community was trying to prove to everyone. Cancer has been known to affect many people whether they experience it firsthand or not.

More than 200 people came out for this event and were able to raise more than 70,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society. This even lasted 7 hours. The rally honored everyone who was affected by cancer in some way. There was music, games, socializing and even a lap run for the survivors and caregivers. The team who came together to put the event in place had made sure a member was walking at all times. This was put in place to signify that cancer never stops it never takes a break so we must keep fighting and never give up.
