FALL Beverly Breast Cancer Walk is CANCELED
Due to rising case numbers of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our walk for October 3, 2021. We have been closely monitoring COVID-19 over the summer and its rise of case numbers with the Delta variants as well as monitoring other large, outdoor Chicago fundraising events to help us come to this difficult decision. We understand that for many of our supporters, participating would have been difficult given the current COVID-19 numbers and the safety of our community remains our TOP PRIORITY!
While we are disheartened that we will not be having a fall Beverly Breast Cancer Walk, we are hopeful and excited for our traditional Mother's Day BBCW Walk in 2022. Each year, our community has come alongside those fighting breast cancer and have rallied together to raise over $6.6 million to support patients and their families in their fight. Just like our BBCW supporters, we know our community will rise, celebrating strength and resilience.
All proceeds from the October OSF Beverly Breast Cancer Walk donations will benefit a new mammography center located in the existing OSF Center for Health location at Halsted and 95th Street. This new location will provide accessible breast cancer screenings to patients in the Washington Heights, Auburn-Gresham and Morgan Park neighborhoods.
Thank you for your support of BBCW throughout this unprecedented year. Your commitment to breast cancer patients, survivors and their families here at OSF Little Company of Mary is incredible and we are grateful to each and every one of you. There is no doubt, we are “stronger together.”
