Hope & Heroes Annual Walk

Team Reichenberg

Team Reichenberg is thrilled to be a part of the 10th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 19th, 2019, at Pier 62/63 to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.

As Many of you are aware, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in December of 2016. I underwent four months of chemotherapy and happy to say I have been cancer free since May 2017!  After seeing first hand what it is like to have cancer and go through treatments, no child should have to go through what I along with many other children have gone through. There needs to be an end to pediatric cancers and blood disorders and I need your help!

Hope & Heroes funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Irving Medical Center – including cutting-edge research, support for families, and care that always puts children first. Columbia is home to the largest and most comprehensive pediatric oncology & blood disorder programs in the country, treating over 1,500 patients a year with high-quality, compassionate care. Funding from Hope & Heroes underwrites over 40% of the Division’s budget including the newest & most advanced treatments, innovative research, comprehensive wellness for patients & survivors, and ensures that every child, regardless of their ability to pay, gets the very best care.  

Over the last 10 years, the Hope & Heroes Walk has raised over $2.5 Million dollars to dramatically affect the lives of pediatric cancer & blood disorder patients and has shared the importance of this cause with thousands of people. With your help, we can ensure that every patient receives excellent care and that they, along with their family, feel supported from the day of diagnosis, throughout treatment, and beyond. 

Donate today and be a part of making a difference. Consider joining our team and walking with us! The Walk is an inspiring & fun day with incredible energy that brings together patients, survivors, families, friends, doctors, nurses, co-workers, and neighbors -  it’s truly not to be missed.

Thank you again. Together we will help children today and save lives tomorrow.
