Tracy May: Behind Walk & Roll Chicago

Several years ago, my friend, Tracy May (at far right in photo), left her publishing career to fight cancer. Cancer took her mother's life when Tracy was still in grade school. Now, she's helping to wrestle the bully disease to the ground, and she's not letting up.

She's the head of Chicago's Walk & Roll Chicago. It takes place next Sunday, May 21, along the lakefront, and is one of the largest walk-type fundraisers for the American Cancer Society in the country.

To sponsor Tracy and read about some of the people she's met along her journey, go here.

To sign up to walk in this inspiring event, to volunteer, or to learn more about sponsoring other participants, go here.

I'm so proud of Tracy for her amazing courage and dedication. No doubt her mom is, too.
