Gilda’s Club Chicago ®

The cancer community is close knit. It’s a club no one wants to be a member of, but is so loving, caring, and together in this fight so many face. That’s why Cinco de Miler is incredibly honored to have Gilda’s Club Chicago as our official charity partner. 

Inspired by and formed by those who loved comedian Gilda Radner who died from cancer in 1989, Gilda’s Club was created as a place where men, women and children whose lives have been impacted by cancer, as well as their families and friends, can feel they are part of a welcoming community of support. Their efforts globally have helped create better cancer treatment plans, providing essential, but often overlooked, services including support groups, counseling, education and healthy lifestyle programs. 

We support their work in the battle against cancer. To learn more about or to donate to Gilda’s Club Chicago, you can do so through EnMotive or at
