Making Strides of Chicago

Combined Insurance

Hello everyone!


A team made up of Combined Insurance employees, family, and friends will be walking in the ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of Chicago at Soldier Field.  This walk raises money for breast cancer programs and services, research and education.  The ACS estimates that over 11,000 women in the state of Illinois will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer this year.  In addition, they also estimate that 2,600 men nationwide will also be diagnosed with breast cancer.  Making Strides Chicago is the only major breast cancer walk in Downtown Chicago during October’s breast cancer awareness month, and they expect over 400 teams and 8,000 people to walk this year.


Unfortunately, cancer is all too familiar to many of our employees, policyholders, families, and friends.  However, we are proud to know so many employees are devoted to giving their time and raising funds to support the fight against cancer.


Our Kick Off fund raising event will be held on Thursday and Friday, August 20 and 21 at 7:00 AM to 1:00 PM at  111 E. Wacker Drive, Chicago, IL 60601 by Burrito Beach Restaurant. 


For more information, contact Melissa Vu at 773-351-8352 or Melissa.vu@combined.com.  Any and all employees, family, and friends are welcome to join the team.  One step and one dollar at a time, we will finish the fight against cancer.  


Thank you.

Welcome to our Team Page. We’ve formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It’s providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.
