Hope & Heroes Annual Walk


The same day our daughter Gillian was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, we met our oncologists at Columbia. Two weeks later, she started an intensive nine months of chemotherapy.

Along the way, we met some incredible people.

Please help us...

  • Raise money to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.
  • Show our gratitude for all of the wonderful people at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center HIP 7 and 5 Tower--who are the greatest of all time.
  • Honor our Gillian O. and our dear friend Ally T


  • Join our team and walk 1 mile with us on Sunday, May 19 at 9 a.m. at Pier 62/63.
  • Join our team virtually.
  • Donate $ through our team (no amount is too big or too small).

Hope & Heroes funds the life-saving work at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Home to the largest and most comprehensive pediatric oncology & blood disorder programs in the country, Columbia treats over 1,500 patients a year with high-quality, compassionate care. Funding from Hopes & Heroes supports....
