Over 700 participants and 100 volunteers earlier this month took part in Newton-Wellesley Hospital’s eighth annual Hope Walks event, raising more than $200,000 to benefit the Vernon Cancer Center.

Proceeds from the fundraiser support access to clinical trials and research, nutrition and genetic counseling, art therapy, yoga, psycho-social services, patient navigation, survivorship initiatives as well as the Pappas PACT (Parenting at a Challenging Time), a parent guidance program for patients with children impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

Donations may still be made to Hope Walks at www.nwh.org/hopewalks.
