A personal page by Addison Park District

June 17, 2023


We're hosting an amazing fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, and we need your support!   The POW! to Cancer 5K Run/Walk for a Cure, on Saturday, June 17, 2023, begins at 8 a.m., at the Addison Park District’s Community Park, 120 E. Oak St., in Addison, IL.   Become a Superhero and join us in the fight against cancer.  $5 from each race registration will be donated to The American Cancer Society.  For more information about our event, including registration, visit our webpage

We are also encouraging our event participants to fundraise on their own to get more people involved!  At the post race celebration, we will announce and award a prize for the most money raised by a group and the most money raised by an individual.  The tracking for this contest must be done through this page.  If you are one of our registered run/walk participants and decided to go the extra mile and fundraise for the American Cancer Society, please have your donors make their donations through this page so we can track it for the contest.  Only donations made through this page will be considered.  Have your donors put in either your personal name or group name in the field add a message.  When you click on Donations, you can see the amounts raised by each person or group.  

If you are unable to attend the race, but would like to make a donation, please do so here.  

This year alone, more than 600,000 Americans will die of cancer. That’s more than 1,600 people per day in the United States.  

Thank you for your support.
