Blast away cancer and join NBC 5 and the Cook’s Children’s Health Foundation on March 6th for the 2021 “Blast.”

The Blast is a virtual walk/run that aims to raise money for Cook Children’s Hematology and Oncology Center. The donations contributed during the virtual walk/run will help provide life-changing research and treatment for Cook Children’s patients who are fighting pediatric cancer.

Whether participants would like to join as an individual or team, their efforts are truly appreciated. All are welcomed to participate in the Blast, children and adults!

The Blast will provide suggested routes online, but participants can walk/run around their neighborhood, town or the Medical Center.
