Now through October 20, 2013

Register now for the 2013 Virtual Walk for Hope!

Celebrate 100 years of cures and care

Registration is now open

It is time once again to put on your walking shoes and join with walkers and friends across the country in raising funds to find better cures and better care for women’s cancers. Register now for Chicago, City of Hope’s Second Annual VIRTUAL Walk for Hope.

What is a Virtual Walk?

Instead of a one-day walk event, participants decide when, where and how much they walk (or run, bike or participate in any other fitness activity). That means anyone can participate in finding cures for women's cancers, regardless of their schedule or where they live.

Join us for the Ceremonial Walk for Hope and centennial celebration

In celebration of City of Hope's Centennial, we are adding a special little twist. We will all join together on October 20 at The Highland Park Art Center and participate in a Ceremonial Walk for Hope and Centennial Celebration” where we will re-dedicate ourselves to this noble cause. The “Walk” will conclude at the Art Center where we will enjoy refreshments, a short speaker program, incentive prize drawings, and desserts.

So — for our mothers, sisters, daughters and granddaughters — put on your Walking Shoes and keep moving towards a better and healthier tomorrow!

REGISTER NOW or learn more about our culminating event in October – and help us get closer to cures! We can't do it without YOU!

Stay in touch!
