OLCHS Team Spartan raised funds for the American Cancer Society at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K in downtown Chicago. OLCHS was proudly represented by over 40 members of Cheer, Freshmen Sophomore Class Advisory Board, Spartan Screamers and Student Council. Fifteen more students registered for the walk than in 2018, which makes it our largest group of students ever!
Event organizers say proceeds from the walk go toward research, prevention, early detection, and support programs for those affected by breast cancer. The event's 13,000 walkers and supporters raised over $520,000.
Chaperone participants included staff members Jean Janik, Mandy Marks, Jennifer Sidlow and Maria Vanderwarren.
