Hey, Chicago, Let’s Tackle Cancer

Join the Sun-Times, CDW, the Make-a-Wish Foundation and Chicago Bears defensive coordinator and cancer survivor Chuck Pagano as we TACKLE CANCER!

Hello! Thank you so much for joining the Chicago Sun-Times, Chuck Pagano, CDW and Make-a-Wish Foundation to TACKLE CANCER! Our friends at the Chicago Bears are getting the party started by recording videos on social media — and they want you to do the same! When you do, you’ll unlock funds for incredible children who are fighting cancer. Be a part of our campaign to Tackle Cancer.

Get started with your video now:

  • Go to @chicagosuntimes on Instagram
  • Click on the smiling face in the center of the screen (below the highlights) and select “Tackle Cancer 2019”
  • Click “Try It” to use the eye black filter to post a selfie or a video on your Instagram account
  • Make sure you tag @chicagosuntimes in your TACKLE CANCER message
  • When you do, the Sun-Times and CDW will each donate $1 to Make-a-Wish Foundation to support awesome kids who are fighting cancer right now!

Here’s what you can say in your video:

This fall, I’m Tackling Cancer with Chuck Pagano and the Chicago Bears!

And I’m challenging you to Tackle Cancer, too.

And when you make your own Tackle Cancer video, CDW and the Chicago Sun-Times will each donate $1 to Make-a-Wish.
