One Day. One Goal. Four Ways to Roll.

Walk & Roll Chicago is the longest-running cancer fundraiser in Illinois. For the past 46 years, people from all over Chicagoland have gathered for Walk & Roll to support the American Cancer Society. This one-of-a-kind event offers participants of all skill levels the opportunity to walk or run 5K, skate 10K or bike 15k to raise funds and help save lives from all cancers. We invite you to join us at Soldier Field on April 21, 2018 to honor cancer survivors, and caregivers, and to enjoy family-friendly activities!

Introducing The Heidi Wolfe Service Recognition Award:

heidi wolfe edits

This award will be presented in memory of Heidi Wolfe, to one outstanding Walk & Roll participant, to be chosen by a panel of ACS staff members and BP staff members on an annual basis. Heidi was a long-time supporter and friend of the American Cancer Society and the Walk & Roll Team. Over the course of 7 years, Heidi single-handedly raised $121,565 to help fight against cancer. Sadly, we lost Heidi to her battle with cancer in December. This award will recognize one remarkable participant each year for his/her significant fundraising, service, and collaborative contributions to Walk & Roll, and for upholding the values and mission of the American Cancer Society.

All participants are eligible and the winner will be announced on stage at Walk & Roll.
