Once again this year Illinois is having two walk/run events to raise money so we don’t have to see more people with half their jaws removed after treatment for oral cancer. There is actually a woman you can see with half her jaw half gone in the video for the event. She states she is walking for her children’s future on camera.
The video advertising the walk/run against oral cancer on Sunday, October 5, 2014 has a Chicago Bears fan wearing a baseball hat, a guy in a Midwestern University Dental School t-shirt and information that HPV 16 is the new leading cause of oral cancer instead of tobacco use.
The two events are at Redmond Park in Bensenville for Northern IL, or the Southern Illinois University Campus in Carbondale for Southern IL. If you don’t want to go to Illinois there is another event in Minnesota near the Twin Cities on October 19th, 2014 at the City of Eagan Community Center.
Sign up to exercise with others and help raise money to find the cure oral cancer.
