Live By Living Day Hike: Shady Hollow Hike at Comlara Park in Illinois! Saturday, April 21.

We are so excited to announce our 1st Live By Living hike in Illinois!  Kathy will lead you for this EASY-MODERATE 1.78 mile loop.  This is a wooded trail at the south end of Evergreen Lake in Comlara Park in Hudson, IL. Spring flowers should be blooming and the trees will be leafing out.  This is an unpaved trail with some hills.  If you’re in the Illinois area, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating our growth, community and love of getting outdoors! 


As always, Live By Living day hikes are open to all cancer survivors and their caregivers, men and women. Regardless of whether you are currently in or out of treatment, we’d love to have you join us. If you’re uncertain whether you are physically up for a hike, please call us at 303-808-2339, and we can help you decide.
