To promote the safety and well-being of our participants, the 2020 ProHealth Care Walks for Cancer will now be held as a unified, virtual event. We know that for many, concerns about COVID-19, commonly referred to as the coronavirus, are top of mind. The safety of our patients and our community remains the top priority for us. While much remains unknown about the COVID-19 virus, we want to be vigilant. We also recognize that many of our Walks participants and their families are part of the most susceptible audience to this virus. In lieu of large gatherings in three communities, we welcome you to walk with your closest supporters in a location that’s safe for you. Whether from your home, neighborhood, or favorite trails, you can tune in digitally to hear messages of hope and encouragement from our ambassadors and cancer specialists. The program and festivities held at the parks have been cancelled, but we hope you will still walk, support cancer services and join us digitally at ProHealthCare.org/WalksforCancer.
What happens when three different communities unite at the same time for the same purpose? Something amazing. And that something is the ProHealth Care Walks for Cancer.
Each year on the first Saturday in May, our Walks take place simultaneously in Mukwonago, Oconomowoc and Waukesha. People from across Waukesha County and beyond join together to support cancer services at ProHealth Care. Funds raised at these events stay here in Waukesha County to have a direct impact on the lives of our patients each day.
Did you know that the money raised at the Walks for Cancer gives our patients access to:
- Lifesaving equipment and state-of-the-art technology
- The latest clinical research trials
- A comprehensive survivorship program that begins on the day of diagnosis
- An oncology nurse navigator who serves as their dedicated partner for guidance and support during every step of their cancer journey
- And more!
Together, we can make a difference. Walk to Care. Walk to Cure.
