Event Information:

More than 1,500 walkers are expected to participate in the 5th Annual Amanda Hichkad CCA Celebration Walk on Saturday, May 12, at 8 a.m. at The John Carroll School, 703 E. Churchville Road in Bel Air. The funds raised support Cancer LifeNet, a free-of-charge nurse navigation and supportive care program offered to cancer patients and their loved ones in Harford and Cecil counties, regardless of where they receive their cancer treatment. Cancer LifeNet is based at the Kaufman Cancer Center at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air. Since the walk’s inception in 2014, more than $500,000 has been raised by friends and neighbors helping friends and neighbors. This year the goal is to raise $150,000 for Cancer LifeNet. Cancer LifeNet is funded solely by philanthropic support. Last year, the program provided free-of-charge services to approximately 1,700 cancer patients and their family members. 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. This annual event brings the community together to honor, celebrate and remember loved ones, friends and neighbors in the fight against cancer. The Presenting Sponsor of the 5th Annual Amanda Hichkad CCA Celebration Walk is Klein’s ShopRite. The walk will take place at a new location in 2018--at The John Carroll School. Participants will walk three laps around the perimeter of the school's stadium fields to complete the one-mile walk. 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. For more information about the 5th Annual Amanda Hichkad CCA Celebration Walk, visit uchfoundation.org, email ufoundation@uchs.org or call 443-643-3460.
