Walk Information

On Saturday, September 30th families from around the Chicagoland area will take to Lake Arlington in Arlington Heights for the annual walk! The purpose of the walk is to celebrate adoption and to share with the community the beautiful option that adoption can be for families. The Cradle’s Center for Lifelong Adoption Support, which provides individual and family support to families post-adoption, is putting together a team of families and staff that will walk together. 

In conjunction with the walk, there will be plenty of kid-friendly activities, including carnival games. Lunch will be provided with your registration.

Register for the walk here. Be sure to enter the word "CRADLE" as the team at registration! 


To represent the Cradle Crew, team t-shirts will be available on the day of walk for $15 each (cash or check only).



Friends and family can also show their support for The Cradle. Share our Cradle Crew page and their tax deductible donation will help purchase art supplies, therapeutic board games, and other materials used to build our new non-directive play therapy room to further support children and families in our adoption therapy practice.

If you have any questions, please contact Mandy Jones at or 847-733-2293.
