Recently, the Hoffman Estates Jaycees participated in the 7th Annual Champions for Children 5K Walk organized by the Children's Advocacy Center of North and Northwest Cook County (CAC). In just a few short weeks, the Jaycees exceeded their fundraising goal of $2,000 and was the largest fundraising team.
Founded in 1989, the CAC serves more than 650 children and families each year. The CAC provides professional counseling, court and medical advocacy, community referrals and other support services to help families heal from the trauma of sexual abuse and severe physical abuse. All services are free of charge.
Navylia Abele, a Hoffman Estates Jaycee and project chairperson says, "On behalf of the Hoffman Estates Jaycees, thank you all for supporting the great work of CAC. Thank you for your donations, thank you for walking with us. We surpassed our goal and actually raised $2,590. This would not have been possible without you all, so thank you again. Child abuse is never ok. If you see it or suspect it, report it. Let's continue to fight for these children."
The Hoffman Estates Chapter of the Jaycees is one of the 1,000 local Chapters throughout the United States. The Jaycees provide individuals between the age of 21 and 40 the opportunity to network and develop personal and leadership skills while serving their community. The Hoffman Estates chapter is always looking for new members. They meet at 7 PM on the third Wednesday of each month at the Hoffman Estates Village Hall.
