Last year, JC25 Women’s Committee in partnership with Teamsters Local 743 raised over $13,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society’s 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks.
This year the Women's Committee and Local 743 will again join forces and has committed to be the popular Pink Chair Sponsor at the Soldier Field Walk which will be held Saturday October 19, 2019.
The American Cancer Society's, Making Strides Walks event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5-mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
We're excited to build on last year's success of raising over $13,000 to fund breast cancer research. 'The dedication and commitment of our walkers knows no limits. We certain that we can successfully meet this year's goal, building on the momentum from last year’s walk.

Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee and Teamsters Local 743 raised over $13,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society’s 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks. Local 731’s Roberta Lester, single handedly raised over $8,000 for the cause.
Collectively over 100 Teamsters and their families participated in the Solider Field as and the Park Ridge event. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5-mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
This year the Women’s Committee and Local 743 committed to be the finish line sponsor at the Soldier Feld Walk which was held on October 20th. The team was furnished with their own tent and provided snacks and giveaways for the team members and a backdrop for photos.
From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It's a day that shouldn't be missed and won't be forgotten.
