The Sixth Annual Amanda Hichkad CCA Celebration Walk takes place Saturday, May 18, at 8 a.m. at The John Carroll School, 703 East Churchville Road in Bel Air.
The one-mile Hichkad CCA Celebration Walk raises funds for Cancer LifeNet, which is funded solely by philanthropic support. The program provides nurse navigators, volunteer navigators, oncology social workers, support groups and specialized classes including tai chi, yoga, healthy cooking and group programs for children who have a parent or loved one with cancer.
Since the walk’s inception in 2014, more than $600,000 has been raised by friends and neighbors helping friends and neighbors in support of Cancer LifeNet. This year the goals are to raise $100,000 and to attract 1,000 walkers.
The cost to register is $25 per person; children 12 and under are free of charge. Commemorative T-shirts will be awarded to those who fundraise $50 or more. Registration takes place online at uchfoundation.org and the morning of the walk. Donations may also be made online at uchfoundation.org. Day-of registration opens at 7:30 a.m., with the ceremonial program and walk beginning at 8 a.m.
The walk is organized by The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation and its Chesapeake Cancer Alliance volunteers. It is named after the late Amanda Hichkad, a Bel Air wife, mother of three boys and volunteer extraordinaire.
