Why: Rebecca Babcock, a native Chicagoan and a recent Columbia College graduate, is in the fight of her life. At age 25, she has been diagnosed with a rare form of genetic Colon Cancer known as FAP (Familial Adenomatous polyposis). Rebecca, who has always enjoyed a smoke and drug free life, is a beloved employee of Old Town School of Folk Music and an essential component of Gingarte Capoeira Chicago. While she still tries to maintain some normalcy, such as going to work and training Capoeira, treatment is becoming more and more demanding and the medical bills are growing. Friends, family and the Gingarte Capoeira Community are coming together to launch a campaign to save Rebecca’s life. Colon Cancer took her father’s life—we don’t want it to take hers.
Cost: Tickets are $10 for entry plus skate rental, which may be purchased online by clicking the Paypal button below or at the door the evening of the event. The cost for rollerskates are $2 and rollerblades are $3. The proceeds from this event will go to assist Rebecca Babcock’s mounting medical bills, which are already in excess of $60,000.
