Care4 Breast Cancer 5K returns for 23rd year Oct. 22 at Woodstock North

The Family Health Partnership Clinic will be hosting the 23rd annual Care4 Breast Cancer 5K fundraising event, a cherished tradition that brings together our community in a powerful display of solidarity against breast cancer.

This year's event promises to be a remarkable celebration of hope, strength, and determination as over 1,500 participants lace up their running shoes and come together to help make early detection and diagnosis available to everyone in the nation.

The run/walk is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 22, at Woodstock North High School.

Participants of all ages and fitness levels are invited to join in this inspiring and impactful occasion.

The Care4 Breast Cancer 5K aims to raise funds that will directly benefit McHenry County residents by providing breast cancer screenings, annual exams, preventative care, education, and patient support programs to the uninsured adults in our community.

"We are excited to host the 23rd annual Care4 Breast Cancer 5K," said Suzanne Hoban, executive director of Family Health Partnership Clinic. "This event not only raises crucial funds for breast cancer initiatives at the clinic but also serves as a symbol of the strength, unity, and compassion that our community brings to this important cause. Making early detection available to those without health insurance is certainly changing lives and offering hope to so many."

Over the past 23 years, the Care4 Breast Cancer 5K has played a pivotal role in raising awareness and fostering a sense of community.

The event has become a beacon of hope for survivors, fighters, and their loved ones, inspiring them to stand strong and continue their journey toward recovery while also making sure that everyone in our community has access to early detection and health care.
