Cal’s Angels Cycling Team Helps Fund Innovative Cancer Research

After losing Cal to leukemia at the age of 13, Cal’s Angels have devoted themselves to carrying on his legacy by funding research, raising awareness and offering moments of relief and happiness to children undergoing cancer treatment.

Throughout the organization’s 10+ year history with Lurie Children’s, Cal’s Angels has touched thousands through their various programs – bringing new hope and supporting research to help us get closer to breakthroughs that lead to cures. Their generous support will continue to make a life-long difference in the lives of our patients and families. Below are a few ways they are lending their support this year.

War on Wheels

Recently, the Cal’s Angels War On Wheels team completed a cross-country charity bike ride along the historic US Route 66 to raise more than $2.4 million to grant wishes, raise awareness and fund research for kids fighting cancer. With more than $200,000 raised, there is still more to do.

Thank you to Cal’s Angels for their ongoing dedication to Lurie Children’s patients and families.
