100% of the proceeds from Gill’s Walk-Off for Cancer will be donated to the Aurora Health Care Foundation to support local cancer care and research. The Chinooks will be announcing different donation and fundraising levels in which fans and supports will receive a variety of benefits as a thank you for their contributions.

Registration for the walk will be open for walkers in the coming days.

The Chinooks and the Aurora Health Care Foundation are also looking for local companies and organizations to partner with for the event. Potential sponsors can get involved by emailing
