Sept 28, 9am-noonish: Newton-Wellesley Hospital Charitable Foundation’s fifth annual HopeWalks event
The Newton-Wellesley Hospital Charitable Foundation has announced that its fifth annual HopeWalks event will be held on Sunday, September 28, 2014. HopeWalks is a 3.5 mile neighborhood walk to benefit cancer patients and their families by supporting the Integrative Support Services offered at the Vernon Cancer Center. These life-enhancing services for cancer patients optimize healing and comfort throughout treatment. Newton-Wellesley Hospital wants to continue making these services available to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Online registration is now open at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.
The HopeWalks route will begin and end at the hospital, and all ages are welcome. Check-in will begin at 9:00 AM, with opening ceremonies starting at 9:30 AM. The walk will then set-off at 10:00 AM. There will be a hospitality tent, entertainment, food, and prizes. HopeWalks is a fundraiser, and while there is no minimum donation amount required to participate, it is recommended that each walker raise a minimum of $100.
The online registration fee is $25 per walker. For those who register by paper or on the day of the event, the registration fee is $35. Children 10 and under are free. Online registration is now available at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.
Corporate sponsorships at all levels are still available. For more information, please contact Maryann Zschau at (617) 243-5915 or [email protected]
