From Newton-Wellesley Hospital:
Newton-Wellesley Hospital is gearing up for its third annual HopeWalks event on Sunday, Sept. 30. HopeWalks is a 3.5 mile neighborhood walk to benefit 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 make these services available to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
The HopeWalks route will begin and end at the hospital, and all ages are welcome. Check-in will begin at 9:00am, opening ceremonies will start at 9:30 am, and the walk will begin at 10:00am. Walkers and their families will enjoy a hospitality tent, entertainment, food, and prizes given to largest teams and participants who raise the most money. 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. All walkers who raise $500+ are considered “Super” walkers, and those who raise $1,000+ are considered “Power” walkers.
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. All registered walkers will receive a HopeWalks t-shirt. Online registration is now available at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.
