Walking Path
BOONE COUNTY – The American Cancer Society will host the Crawl For Life of Boone County fundraising event on Saturday, April 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will take place in Spencer Park in Belvidere.
Crawl For Life is a fundraising event benefitting The American Cancer Society by honoring our littlest (or youngest) cancer survivors and caregivers in an event tailored to them and their families.
Infants, toddlers and children of all ages will walk or “stroll” with their families and friends to fight cancer and celebrate life together.
It is an opportunity for families and community groups to be empowered in the fight against cancer and to contribute to the American Cancer Society mission of eliminating cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Funds raised through the event will benefit the Relay For Life of Boone County which will be held Saturday, June 4.
To register your child for this event, visit www.relayforlife.org/crawlbooneil or call (815) 229-1287, or contact Cassandra Sendra by email at: Cassandra.Sendra@cancer.org. Registration is $15 per child if you register before the event and $20 per child on the day of the event.
When you register your child for the event, they will receive a small Relay For Life item (Bib or lanyard), a goodie bag with local passes, snacks, and information, unlimited bouncing at several bounce houses and slides at the event, face painting, see a magician, princess Sing A Long with Cinderella, Snow Princess Anna, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel, photo booth, coloring station, birthday party, time with Hammy Hog from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., and time with Monkey Joe and Monkey Jane.
Registered participants will also get passes being given away for Forest City Queen rides (x2) Alpine park pool and Sand Park pool passes (x2), Public Skate passes (x2), Playword passes (x2), Nicholas conservatory passes (x2), Pony or wagon ride passes Lockwood park (x2), two birthday parties at Cherry Bowl, and $100 to Dolphin Swim Club.
There will also be raffle items including Shed Aquarium family passes, KidzBop tickets, and 15 raffle baskets from all the vendors attending valued above $25.
When you first get to our event, you will stop by our registration table to check in, sign or hand in your bounce house permission form, receive your wristband and bib or slinky toy.
From there, you can check out our two bounce houses, slides, magician, games, and activities. At 10:30 a.m., we will hold our opening ceremony with a childhood cancer survivor and have them lead us in the first lap of our walk. The bounce houses, games, and activities will still run during that time. We recommend taking at least two laps, but it is completely up to each individual.
Around 11:30 a.m., we will have our closing ceremony and announce our raffle and prize winners.
Please remember any amount of money helps in the fight against cancer, so there is no set amount necessary to raise. You can even just pay the donation registration fee. Most teams will raise at least $250 to $1,000, depending on their fundraising experience; however, some teams reach levels as high as $10,000.
Each team is different, but based on the $100 per person recommendation (so everyone receives a t-shirt); the $1,000 level is achievable. Every dollar makes a difference, and the more funds you raise, the more lives you help save.
Once this is complete, everyone can enjoy the Crawl For Life event on Saturday, April 16, where they can celebrate raising money to fight cancer.
On the day registration, bounce house and slides fun, face painting, photo booth time, the magician performance, Monkey Joe and Monkey Jane visit, Hammy Hog visit, snacks and drinks, games and activities, vendor sales, and raffles will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.
From 10:15 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., the Start Line Ceremony will begin, followed by the American Cancer Society Speaker, and Honorary Childhood Cancer Survivor Speaker.
From 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. the 1K to 3K walk around Spencer Park will take place along with fun and games still going on at the Pavilion.
From 11:45 a.m. to noon, the Finish Line Ceremony will commence along with the announcement of the raffle winners, who must be present to win.
The event will end promptly at noon.
