Sunday May 22 - Walk starts at 10:15 am - Registration opens as early as 9:00 am
Location - Pier 84 - In the park by the Hudson River - enter at W 44th St. and Hudson River
It's our 5th TEAM BEN. And that means 5 years since he's been with us. Wow. The Walk to benefit the Hope & Heroes Foundation is our chance to remember Ben with a group of people he touched: family, friends, his school friends, and hospital staff. Among us we have many memories, jokes, laughs, and smiles.
So we hope you will join us. Anyone can contribute to our effort, any support is appreciated but not required. The Walk is a mile long and held here in Manhattan, so anyone local can register to walk only, invite friends to walk, and/or contribute. And if you're not local, we would truly appreciate being in your thoughts and having your support. You can click the Join My Team button to join TEAM BEN or the Donate button to contribute.
About Hope & Heroes and why we do this:
The Hope & Heroes Foundation supports the Columbia University Medical Center to provide cutting edge research and integrated therapies not covered by insurance to make the best possible care available to children fighting cancer. It was a Hope & Heroes supported study which brought our Ben's difficult-to-treat lukemia into remission using a then-new technique. And they continue to find new therapies, now using genomes data, and continue to save more children, many of whom join us on the walk.
Please consider supporting Hope & Heroes with a tax-deductible donation today. I can promise that it will truly make a difference in the lives of children who need your help. Thank you for your generosity.
