    Celebrate Your Triump Over Pain at the 1st Annual Metal Walk
    ATI_Foundation posted:
    The ATI Foundation is excited to announce a truly unique event celebrating the achievements of people with orthopedic implants and the dedication of the medical staff that helped them return to a normal, active life. The 1st Annual ATI Metal Walk: Celebrating Movement is a 5K and 1K walk for people with total joint replacements or other orthopedic implants and their supporters.
    The event will take place at 10 a.m. on April 28th outside of Soldier Field in Chicago. The 5K and 1K route includes a beautiful route along Chicago's spectacular lakefront. Participants will enjoy entertainment by Chicago cover band Hi Infidelity, a performance by Jim Cornelison, appearances by special guests, and refreshments.
    The walk will benefit the ATI Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that assists children with physical impairments. Beneficiaries, like 16-year-old Megan of Shorewood, receive medical and financial resources to enhance and sustain a better quality of life. Megan required a complete knee replacement and a partial femur replacement due to bone cancer.
    Everyone is welcome to join the walk. Participants with metal implants will wear special metallic shirts signifying their winning battle against debilitating pain. The $25 entrance fee includes event shirt, food, entertainment & fun. Register at or call 630-296-2222 for more information.
