Author Jennifer Stevenson along with her pals from Derby Lite and The Windy City Rollers will be rolling for the cure for the American Cancer Society this Sunday, and they need your help. If you can afford it, please become a sponsor.
“Walk & Roll is a fundraising event to benefit the American Cancer Society. Celebrating its 36th anniversary, Walk & Roll has expanded to four locations. Chicago participants can select from a five-mile walk, 10-mile skate or 15-mile bike ride along Chicago’s Lakefront.”
