LET’S GO THE SOCIAL DISTANCE!
Walk So Others Can
2020 has been a year of change and adaptation. Like you, Operation Walk Chicago has been adjusting to new ways of doing things. Since February, we have not been able to travel to visit our programs or host new missions; but we have been helping our partner hospitals, raising money, working in our local community, and preparing for a lot of travel in 2021.
And we’ve had to change how we raise money and connect with our volunteers & supporters. This year’s virtual walk-a-thon, Walk So Others Can, will be our primary fundraiser.
What hasn’t changed is the reason you’re walking:
Walk for others, for those suffering from the pain & disability of arthritis,
for those without the resources for or access to treatment.
You decide where you will walk, when you walk, who you walk with and how far. You’ll be joined by people around the world, including grateful former Operation Walk Chicago patients who now are able to walk for others. Walk with your family, in a small group or on your own – it’s up to you!
From October 11-18, walkers from all over the world will walk for this great purpose, just as you are! Every dollar that you raise helps pay for life-changing surgery and rehabilitation for those who are suffering and without access to care.
Take your first step now and register!
Sign up as an individual, join a team, or create a team of your own.
When you Walk So Others Can you are helping Operation Walk Chicago care for those in need around the world. Operation Walk Chicago has ongoing partnerships with healthcare providers in Nepal, Brazil, Vietnam, The Philippines, and the United States. Every year, Operation Walk Chicago fields requests for new programs around the world. We’d love to say yes to all of them. Our only limitation is the money we raise.
Take the first step in fundraising by setting your personal goal. Then, invite your family, friends, church or organization to sponsor you. Together you will transform lives, restore hope, alleviate pain, and help someone walk again.
