ProHealth Care’s Walks for Cancer are going virtual

Walks for Cancer 2020 UpdateThe ProHealth Care Walks for Cancer are ProHeath’s largest annual event, bringing together thousands of people every spring to walk in Waukesha, Oconomowoc and Mukwonago. This year, the ProHealth Care Foundation has reimagined the walks.

"In lieu of large gatherings in three communities on May 2, we are welcoming Walks for Cancer participants to walk with their closest supporters in a safe location of their choice at a time that works best for them,” said Paula Jacobs, director of philanthropy for the foundation. "Whether in their own neighborhood or on favorite trails, Walks for Cancer supporters are encouraged to continue to register and participate – and support local cancer services."

The ProHealth Care Foundation organizes the Walks for Cancer to unite people in support of cancer services at ProHealth Care. Funds raised for the walks have a profound impact on cancer patients and their families. The funds are used for clinical trials, lifesaving equipment and technology, and other needed services.

Information about this year’s walks is being shared at ProHealthCare.org/WalksforCancer, on the foundation’s Facebook page and by email to registrants. The announcements will include information about T-shirt distribution.

"Digital activities will include messages of hope and encouragement from our Walks for Cancer ambassadors and ProHealth cancer specialists,” Jacobs said. “We hope many people will walk with us in their way and support ProHealth Care’s cancer services."

There is plenty of time to register for the virtual event and support ProHealth Care’s cancer services. If you have questions or need more information, please contact WalksforCancer@phci.org.
