Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Lincoln-Way East cheerleaders and football players were up early on Sunday, May 17 volunteering for the Cancer Support Centers Walk of Hope.

Football players and cheerleaders arrived at 6:00 am to help with parking and set-up for the event that drew over 700 walkers at Commissioners Park in Frankfort. Cheerleaders also lined the walking route to cheer on the participants.

Everyone volunteered on their own. They understand that they are role models and want to make a positive impact within their community whenever they can, stated Jayson Polad, coach for the East cheerleaders.

We were very honored to be a part of the Walk of Hope, he added.

The Lincoln-Way East Varsity Football team was honored to volunteer at the Cancer Support Center Walk of Hope. Our thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by this disease, stated Rob Zvonar, head football coach and drivers education teacher for Lincoln-Way East.
The Walk of Hope raised over $100,000 for the Cancer Support Centers in Mokena and Homewood. Programs are offered by highly trained and committed professionals who provide services, education and networking, fitness and physical wellness, counseling, and nutrition information, all for no cost to the cancer patient/survivor
