Our friends and former patients around the world are supporting Operation Walk Chicago, including Tran Van Tien with his family out for a family walk.

Hello guys! Today is October 17th, 2020, and I am Tran Van Tien. Now, I am in Hoan Kiem lake with my family. We are getting out to support the walkathon. We walked in gratitude for the help of the organization and the volunteers. They have changed my life and so many people around the world. In March 2015, Operation Walk Chicago came to Vietnam and helped me replace hip joints. In March 2016, the organization returned to Vietnam again to help me replace knee joints. Those two surgeries helped me to be able to walk as I am now.  Operation Walk Chicago is not only a non-governmental organization, but also they are angels who have miraculously blessed me. I would also like to thank all of you for your contribution to Operation Walk Chicago. This contribution has helped the organization travel around the world, helping and changing the lives of many people with situations like me.
Thank you.  May God bless you and your family. Please visit operationwalkchicago.com and click register now to accompany and help people like me get back to a normal life. See you in Vietnam one day.
Goodbye, and see you again!


Today our @sportsandortho1 Glenview clinic did their @operationwalkchicago challenge. We walked in support of those doctors going to third world countries to perform free surgeries and give them free physical therapy.
