The Newton-Wellesley Hospital Charitable Foundation has announced that its fourth annual HopeWalks event will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2013. 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. 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 9:00am, opening ceremonies with Honorary Master of Ceremonies Sue Brady from MIX 104.1 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. Online registration is now available at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.
Corporate sponsorships are still available. For more information, please contact Haillie MacNeill at (617) 243-5915 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
