This Sunday, step into the “Rise Up Walk” in Arlington Heights to Benefit JourneyCare!
The family of former JourneyCare patient Carla Gohde has organized a “Rise Up Walk” fundraiser taking place this Sunday morning, May 21, in Arlington Heights.
“Rise Up Walk” is splitting all donations equally between JourneyCare and Cancer Treatment Centers of America in suburban Chicago—the two organizations that cared for Carla during her battle with breast cancer.
On the event website, the Gohde family says the following about JourneyCare: “This is the hospice center where Carla stayed. The staff did a phenomenal job caring for her and making everything as comfortable as possible. They provided Carla and her family with the attention and privacy that they needed during their difficult time.”
Sunday’s “Rise Up Walk” is a one-hour walk around Lake Arlington, one of Carla’s favorite places to clear her mind and stay active, followed by breakfast and an optional yoga session. For more details, the event schedule and registration information, visit www.riseupwalk.org.
